A St. George, Utah man was recently sentenced to life in prison without parole. Marc Clifton Bryant was convicted of the heinous crime of rape and torture of a 16 year old girl with a screwdriver and a blow torch. What a deviant! Mr. Bryant was convicted and sentenced in absentia. In other words, he did not attend the trial because he had fled the State but was later arrested in the Jacksonville, Florida at a Golden Corral after his crimes and the case was reported on America’s Most Wanted.

The rape, molestation and torture of this teenager certainly has resulted in lifelong physical as well as emotional scars on this teenager. It is most unfortunate that people like Mr. Bryant continue to inflict their will and deviant acts on child victims.
