An Alabama man has been sentenced to 615 years in prison for his sex crimes involving young children.
Raven Smith, 35, apologized to the families of the five victims, all girls under the age of 16 who he molested over a period of several years. He had been accused of raping, sodomizing, and sexually abusing the children. An emotional testimony by one of the victim’s mothers and a plea from the prosecutor led the judge to delivering the maximum sentence.
Smith is unlikely to be paroled due to the structure of the sentences.
