Kansas man sentenced to life for raping 5-year-old

TOPEKA | A south-central Kansas man has been sentenced to two life sentences for raping a 5-year-old girl he was babysitting in 2006.

Kansas Attorney General Steve Six said Randy Herbel, 42, of Hillsboro was sentenced Tuesday by a Marion County judge. Herbel was found guilty in July of one count of rape of a child and one count of aggravated indecent liberties with a child.

Six says the attacks happened in August 2006 while Herbel was babysitting the girl. He won't be eligible for parole for 25 years and must register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
