South Carolina Man Sentenced To Life For Impregnating 10-Year-Old

A 37-year-old South Carolina man identified as Tony Orlanda Singleton, has been sentenced to life in prison for impregnating a 10-year-old. He was found guilty Wednesday of first-degree criminal sexual assault, according to prosecutors.

Authorities say they took DNA evidence from the fetus after the girl had an abortion and it proved Singleton was the father. Trouble started when Singleton came into a room while the little girl was watching cartoons in a home in Estill in April 2016, turned off the lights and raped her, the 14th Circuit Solicitor’s Office said in a news release.

It’s understood jurors deliberated less than an hour Wednesday before finding Singleton guilty. Circuit Judge Carmen Mullen then handed down the life sentence without parole.
