Alabama judge issues incredibly long prison sentence for offender

DOTHAN, Ala. (AP) — A southeast Alabama judge has sentenced a man to a 624-year prison term in a rape and kidnapping case.

The Dothan Eagle reports that Houston County Circuit Court Judge Kevin Moulton sentenced 25-year-old Mark Anthony Beecham to the prison term Tuesday.

Beecham received 99-year prison sentences for six felony convictions: first-degree kidnapping, two counts of first-degree rape and three counts of first-degree sodomy. He also received a 20-year sentence for a felony first-degree theft of property offense and a 10-year sentence for a felony first-degree bail jumping conviction.

A Houston County jury found Beecham guilty of all eight felony charges earlier this month.

The charges stemmed from offenses involving a woman that happened in December 2006.

As long as it took to get this through the court, the sentence will restrict his chance at recividism. Unless he lives a lot longer than most.

" Beecham received 99-year prison sentences for six felony convictions: first-degree kidnapping, two counts of first-degree rape and three counts of first-degree sodomy." If this judge doesn't get an award from the feminists they are ignoring a good man.
