A ‘Pedophile’ from Oregon is facing one of the longest jail sentences in
American history for hundreds of rapes, sodomizations and sexual
attacks against a six-year-old girl.
David McCutcheon, 39, faces 2,750 years in jail if he is found guilty of the 220 counts to which police say he has confessed.
McCutcheon, from Cottage Grove, OR, was arrested on Wednesday and
charged with 70 counts of first-degree rape, 40 counts of first-degree
sodomy, and 110 counts of criminal mistreatment.
McCutcheon was interviewed by detectives from Eugine for two days and
was then handed over to Cottage Grove investigators, where the alleged
attacks happened, following a May 26 report.
He is currently being held in the Lane County Jail on at least 220 total charges.
The district attorney will review the case for formal charges.
220 CHARGES TOTALLING 1,750 YEARS
Rape carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 25 years under Oregon’s Measure 11 sentencing guidelines.
Sodomy normally carries a mandatory minimum sentence of over 8 years,
but that increases to 25 years if the child is under the age of 12.
Under Oregon’s laws, prosecutors can negotiate a guilty plea with a defendant in exchange for dismissing some charges.
A judge can also choose to sentence someone convicted of multiple counts
to serve the prison time concurrently (at the same time) or
If the judge chooses to make him serve the time consecutively then he
would theoretically face 70 counts of first-degree rape, which is 1,750
years, and his 40 counts of sodomy would add another thousand years.
His potential sentence will be greater than that of serial rapist Billy
Joe Godfrey, who is serving 35 life sentences, totaling 1050 years for
35 counts of forced sodomy of his stepson who was only three when the
McCutcheon was arraigned Wednesday on eight charges of first-degree rape and first-degree sodomy according to KOMO news.
His next court appearance is July 16, 2020.
