Tonganoxie man, 37, pleads guilty to raping young girl

May 13, 2011


A 37-year-old Tonganoxie man pleaded guilty to child rape and three other counts Friday for molesting a girl when she was first 6 years old, Leavenworth County Attorney Todd Thompson said.

Edward Everitt Peel Jr. entered the pleas in Leavenworth County District Court, and Thompson said Peel is expected to be sentenced to serve 23 years in prison.

On the rape, aggravated indecent liberties and attempted aggravated indecent liberties counts, Thompson said Peel molested the girl multiple times between June 2002 and December 2004, when she was between 6 and 8 years old, while the girl was visiting other children at a Tonganoxie residence. Peel also pleaded guilty to soliciting the child several years later when she was 14 years old.

Thompson said the offenses occurred prior to Jessica’s Law passing in Kansas, under which defendants can face a life sentence for child sex crime convictions.

Peel’s sentencing is scheduled for June 24. Assistant county attorney Cheryl A. Marquardt prosecuted the case.

Do unto others as you would do unto you... well he "did un" to that kid with rape, aggravated indecent liberties and attempted aggravated indecent liberties, that should be "do unto him". Or simply beat the crap out of him.

I was actually surprised to see such a long sentence being probable. Not that I in any way pity him. I would be perfectly fine with a life sentence. Hope he gets to experience what he inflicted on that child everyday of that sentence.

He should get a life sentence, no doubt about it. Solitary as well...Our prison system is soft enough as it is....
