A Montpelier man learned his fate Thursday in Williams County Court.
40 year old Daniel Bignell JR will spend the next 15 years behind bars, after which he will have to register as a sexual predator every 90 days for the rest of his life.
Bignell was sentenced yesterday after pleading guilty last year to three counts of rape involving underage girls.
Bignell didn’t speak on his own behalf at yesterday’s sentencing.
The sentence requires Bignell to serve five years in a state penitentiary for each of the three counts of rape. Those sentences will be served consecutively, not concurrently, with no chance of early or conditional release.
