MEMPHIS — A Memphis man faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 25 years in prison after being convicted of raping a child, aggravated sexual battery and rape.

The Commercial Appeal reported that 46-year-old Marc Baechtle also faces up to 12 years each with no parole for the charges of aggravated sexual battery and rape. He will be sentenced Aug. 28.

Prosecutors say Baechtle first began sexually abusing the 10-year-old girl in January 2001. After her 13th birthday, prosecutors say, Baechtle continued to force the child to perform sexual acts with him. The victim is now an adult.

According to online criminal records and the national Sex Offender Registry, Baechtle was also convicted in Florida in 2008 of sexual battery/coercion of a child.

" Baechtle was also convicted in Florida in 2008 of sexual battery/coercion of a child." There is no place on this Earth for pedophiles. It is past time to enact the death penalty for serial pedophiles. Lethal injection, electric chair, firing squad, hold them under water twice and raise them up once, doesn't matter so long as they receive a just penalty for their crimes.

Yep. If we would just euthanize all pedophiles on their first offense there would be No 2nd offense.
