Two Time Child Molester Gets Life Sentence

A convicted child molester will spend the rest of his life in prison.

Christopher Whittemore received two life sentences Tuesday for raping and inpregnating a 12 year old girl. Whittemore served 17 years in prison for raping a 13 year old girl back in 1985.

Earlier this year, Whittemore broke his back in three places while trying to escape from the Smith County Jail. He was only out for about an hour before being discovered by Smith County Deputies.

Texas law requires a life sentence for a second sexual assault conviction.
