Wichita man receives 4 consecutive life sentences in child sex crimes case


WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – A 40-year-old Wichita man has been sentenced to consecutive life terms for sexually assaulting an underage girl.

A judge sentenced Jeremiah Orange to four consecutive life sentences, each with parole eligibility after 25 years.

In November, a jury found Orange guilty of two counts of rape and two counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child.

The assaults took place in Wichita over several months in 2016 when the girl and her mother were staying with Orange.

During sentencing Wednesday, the judge said his reasoning for the consecutive life sentences is that, “Each charge represents separate distinct acts and separate and distinct traumas inflicted on this child while the defendant was in a caretaking role for the child.
