Man sentenced for raping 23-month-old

Posted: Updated:

The man who raped a 23-month-old girl in 2014 receives his sentence.

Daniel Degele was sentenced Tuesday to 100 years with 60 suspended to the custody of the Department of Health and Human Services.

Juli Pierce, Attorney with Yellowstone County, says Degele was sentenced on two counts of sexual intercourse without consent.

She says he is not eligible for parole for the first 25 years. She says he also has to complete sex offender treatment.

In November 2014 the 23-month-old was flown to the Children's Hospital in Denver for surgery to repair what doctors said were life threatening injuries.
