MUSKOGEE, Okla. (AP) - A 44-year-old Muskogee man is being given
probation after pleading guilty to raping a 6-year-old girl.
Vincent Martin LeCompte was given a 20-year suspended sentence Thursday as part of a plea deal on the first-degree rape charge.
Assistant District Attorney Shannon Otteson says prosecutors agreed to the deal because the victim already has testified three times.
A statement from the mother of the girl says the girl is traumatized and in counseling.
