A Wheeling man has been sentenced to two lifetimes in prison for the rape of 12-Year-Old Girl.
James John Kirksey, 32, of Wheeling was sentenced by Judge Frank Fregiato in a Belmont County courtroom on Friday for his role in the rape of the minor.
Both Kirksey and his girlfriend were charged earlier this year with the rape of the girl. Authorities said the rapes occurred while the girlfriend held down her own daughter while Kirksey raped her.
"This is the point at which I usually do a verbal review of the case, but the details of this case are so disgusting, I will not speak of them," said Judge Fregiato.
The attorney for Kirksey said he can't defend any of Kirksey's actions and that he's "dimwitted."
Kirksey pleaded guilty to two counts of felony one rape last week.
