A judge has imprisoned a man for sexually abusing five girls younger than a girl after hearing the emotional plea of a victim's mother.
Houston County Circuit Judge Todd Derrick sentenced Raven Smith, 35, to 615 years behind bars.
Smith, from Cottonwood, Alabama, admitted that the young girls – all under the age of 16 – molested, raped and sodomized several times over several years, WTVY reported.
Before the court, he apologized to the families of his victims.
Judge Derrick gave Smith the maximum term of imprisonment after hearing an emotional plea from the mother of one of the victims.
& # 39; I can't believe what I said meant so much to a judge punishing this man the way I wanted (punished), & # 39; she told WTVY.
Judge Derrick's (pictured) sentence came after hearing the emotional plea from the mother of one of the victims. She said: & # 39; I can't believe what I said meant so much for a judge to punish this man the way I wanted (punished) & # 39;
District Attorney J.T. Jones became emotional when he described the heinous crimes that Smith had committed in court.
& # 39; If you deal with cases involving children, especially young children, it will touch your heart again and again, said Jones.
The mother said she believes there are more victims who are too scared to come forward.
She hopes that those victims know that he is behind bars and & # 39; never hurt them or anyone else & # 39 ;.
It is unlikely that Smith will ever become conditional.
