State prison inmate gets another 100 years for child rape

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - A man serving 15 years in the South Dakota Penitentiary for a child sex crime has been sentenced to another 100 years for molesting two other children.

Forty-year-old Michael Slaughter had earlier pleaded guilty to first-degree rape counts. Authorities say he molested two children on almost a daily basis between 2011 and 2012. A prosecutor called the abuse "graphic and horrible."

Slaughter's attorney agreed that the crime was horrific but said Slaughter had been victimized himself as a child and has sought psychotherapy, which state prison can't offer.
