Kevin Leroy Smith, the man who pleaded guilty to raping a 12-year-old Glenpool girl, has been sentenced to 120 years.  

Smith kidnapped and sexually assaulted a girl in January of 2013. Prosecutors say he forced the girl into his car, drove her to a different location, raped her then let her go in her neighborhood.

That case was unsolved for more than a year until two girls selling Kool-Aid in their driveway became suspicious of a man who approached them.

The girls, 11 and 13, told police the man asked them if they wanted to make money and offered to take them to his studio to take their pictures. The girls got away from him, saved the cup he drank from and gave it to police for evidence.

Smith pleaded guilty to the crimes in February.

"This is a man who should never get out on our streets again because if he were out on our streets again, our children would not be safe," said Tulsa County Assistant District Attorney Sarah McAmis.

Family was emotional inside the courtroom on Wednesday, crying as graphic details of the crime were recounted.

The victim also was in court as the ADA read her statement. The girl wrote about the last three years -- the nightmares and the bullying -- and begging for the maximum sentence.

"Finally, this victim after all of these years has got the justice that she deserved, and this defendant will never get out of prison again, which is exactly what is necessary," McAmis said.

Smith apologized but blamed an addiction to synthetic marijuana for his actions.

"For her to have the courage to come to court, and for her to have the courage to make a victim impact statement and to be in the same room with her attacker, is incredible," McAmis said.

Smith is currently serving 17 years in federal prison for child porn possession and distribution.
