TULSA, OK -- A northeastern Oklahoma man draws three life sentences for the rape and sexual abuse of young children.

U.S. Attorney David O'Meilia says 43-year-old Kimberly Chancellor of Salina was sentenced on Thursday for the three convictions he received in a July jury trial.  The first charge against Chancellor accused him of the forcible rape of an Indian female child under the age of 12 in 2003.  The second accused him of the attempted rape of an Indian child in 2007.  And, the third count accused Chancellor of attempting to rape by force an Indian female child under the age of 16 in 2007.

"Thanks to the brave testimony of the three child victims and the hard work by law enforcement agents, this child predator will spend the rest of his life in prison," said U.S. Attorney David O'Meilia.

Chancellor was arrested last March in Dallas.  All of the crimes occurred on Indian land.
