Man gets 2 life sentences plus 120 years for raping 4-year-old
COBB COUNTY, Ga. - Prosecutors say a Marietta man who repeatedly raped a little girl will spend the rest of his life in prison.
A Cobb County judge sentenced 48-year-old Frederick Wade Sherwood to two life sentences, plus 120 years.
The girl was just 4-years-old when the sexual abuse began, according to authorities. The attacks happened between 2014 and 2015 in Sherwood's Delk Road apartment.
Sherwood has been in custody since May 2016.
On the witness stand, the child said she didn't tell anyone about the abuse sooner because she was scared Sherwood would be mad at her.
