Child abuser in District sentenced to 25 years

A Northeast D.C. man was sentenced to 25 years in prison Tuesday after pleading guilty to sexually abusing a 7-year-old girl and photographing himself during the crimes, which occurred over a three-year period, federal prosecutors said.

McKinley Hunt, 45, of the 4800 block of Fort Totten Road NE, had pleaded guilty to one count of production of child pornography and two counts of child sexual abuse with aggravating circumstances after a July arrest and search of Hunt's computer in his room in a rooming house.

The search found more than 50 sexually explicit photos of a girl and photos of Hunt abusing her, statements entered in court showed.

The child reported the abuse to a family member, leading to Hunt's arrest.

Why don't Wapo show a picture of his mugshot so fellow prisoners know what he looks like?

I hope McKinley Hunt is repeatedly brutally raped in jail, we can only hope he doesn't make it out alive.

ALL sex crimes should be a life sentence without parole. These people cannot be rehabilitated. Keep them off the streets.

We need to reinstitute the death penalty in MD and DC. Some crimes are too heinous and too inexcusable to allow offenders to live -- especially on the taxpayers' dole. Here's hoping true justice occurs while he sits in prison.

Only 25 years?

A 25 year sentence for child rape in DC vs. a recent 100 year sentence in VA for child porn. Yet another reason to hate liberals.
