A Belmont County man is receiving a maximum prison sentence.
Judge Frank Fregiato sentenced Evan Porter to 11 years in prison Thursday after Porter admitted to raping a 11-year-old girl.
Five years prior, Porter admitted to the raping of a four-year-old girl when he was a minor. Porter only received probation and a sex offender treatment program.
The victim of today’s case was in attendance for the hearing.
“I’ve been being bullied a lot at school,” said the victim, now 12-years-old. “I’ve been feeling depressed every day. I even cut myself trying to help the hurt.”
The victim’s father expressed his thoughts at the hearing.
“You really hurt my daughter a lot,” said Chris Feaster, victim’s father. “You took something from her that she can never ever get back.”
Porter will be taken to prison.
