Pennsylvania child rapist sentenced to 3,000 years in prison

A Pennsylvania man who routinely raped girls for at least six years was sentenced to 3,000 years in prison, prosecutors said, making it one of the longest sentences in US history.

Matthew Perry, 44, of Greensboro, was convicted of raping girls thousands of times over a six-year period beginning when the victim was about five years old. She was 11 when Perry was charged with her first.

“Victim testimony [that] “Being raped every day has become as routine as brushing her teeth,” Greene County District Attorney David Russo said last year. I asked God for help, but no one came.”

A friend of the victim who saw what was going on reported the abuse to a school counselor, which led to a 2017 investigation. It took Perry years to come to trial, as she was initially deemed incapable of standing trial and admitted for her mental health.

Prosecutors ultimately decided to indict Perry on one count for each day a child was raped, resulting in 2,190 counts of rape of a child under the age of 13 and 2,190 counts of minor incest. He was indicted on more than 13,000 felony counts, including

On Tuesday, a Greene County court sentenced Perry to 3,000 years in prison, one of the longest in Pennsylvania and U.S. history. He will not be eligible for parole until his 3523.

Last year, Perry was sentenced to 40 to 80 years in prison for repeatedly raping another girl between the summer of 2016 and March 2017, when the victim was about 10 to 11 years old. The girl was so devastated by the abuse that she was hospitalized for mental health issues shortly before her trial.

Perry’s wife, 40-year-old Cheyenna Perry, was sentenced to 3.5 to 7 years in prison for videotaping and photographing girls engaging in sexual acts. She sent the video to her husband who was trying to escape her arrest in the summer of 2017. Cheyenna was ordered to register as a life offender.
