The 61-year-old Pullman man who raped a girl for 10 years has been sentenced to life in prison.
Douglas Martin was sentenced to the maximum by Whitman County Superior Court Judge Gary Libey on Friday morning. Martin was also ordered to pay the victim 3,000 dollars in restitution. He will be eligible for parole in 13 years.
Martin pleaded guilty last month to 3 counts of 1st degree child rape and a child pornography-related felony. Martin raped the victim starting when she was 5 years old and photographed the sexual assaults. You can listen to Judge Libey handing down the maximum sentence by clicking on the audio file below.
