WATERBURY, Conn. (AP) - A Danbury man convicted of raping a 17-month-old girl in Waterbury has been sentenced to 55 years in prison.
Thirty-5-year-old Edwin Martinez was sentenced Monday for the sexual assault of the girl two years ago. The prosecutor says the attack on the girl was brutal, savage and heinous.
In June, a jury found Martinez guilty of 5 charges, including two counts of rape. He was charged with raping the toddler at his girlfriend's home while she was baby sitting the girl.
The prosecutor says the girl was dropped off in the morning in good physical condition, but by the time her father picked her up at about 4 p.m. she showed signs of an assault.
The girl was brought to a hospital for treatment of injuries that included bruising to her ankles, arms, ears and face and other physical signs of rape.
Investigators gathered DNA evidence from the home connecting Martinez to the rape, but Martinez maintains he's innocent.

This story completely disgusts me...
How could you do that to a 17month old...they are sooo tiny and innocent.

I think the state could save a LOT of money, if they let Moms come in and administer the punishments to child rapists...

55 years isn't enough. More time, plus castration would be a good start.
