The only plumbing Daniel Wade b.k.a. the “Maintenance Man rapist” from Georgia will experiencing from this point on will be courtesy of his cellmate. A jury of his peers have found the elderly perv guilty of his accused crimes and the judge wants his soul to remain in prison until the world self-destructs.
He has been sentenced to six life sentences with 140 years thrown on top for good measure for a series of rapes he committed in the 1980s.
Reports The Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
On Wednesday afternoon, Daniel Wade, 63, was sentenced to six life sentences plus 140 years.
Wade earned the nickname the “maintenance man” rapist because he pretended to be one to gain entry to some of his victims’ apartments along the I-85 corridor of northeast Atlanta, prosecutors said.
He attacked five female victims between January 1986 and January 1987 and each of the cases went unsolved for nearly 20 years, authorities said.
Investigators with the Fulton County District Attorney’s office and Atlanta Police linked DNA from all five Fulton County victims with three other DeKalb and Gwinnett county victims and in 2011 were able to positively connect Wade to the DNA from all of the eight cases, prosecutors said.
His charges included rape, aggravated child molestation, aggravated sodomy, aggravated child cruelty, burglary and robbery by intimidation with the youngest victim being just 10-years-old.
Sounds like the sentence is fair, especially if the current inmates would be so gracious to welcome Wade in with open arms. Check out the news bit below.
