Teen Sentenced for Raping 8-Year-Old

By  | 

SALINA, Kan. (AP) _ A Brookville teenager has been sentenced to about 15 years in prison for raping an 8-year-old girl.

Christopher Hoffman, 17, was sentenced Thursday in Saline County Court. He pleaded guilty earlier to raping the girl at his family's home in 2007.

A forensic interviewer with the Kansas Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services worked with the girl for nearly four months before she identified Hoffman as her attacker.

The girl testified at a hearing that she remembered crying and being told by the defendant he was going to smack her if she wasn't quiet.
