Jetto Dye, charged with kidnapping, attempted murder and attempted rape of a 10-year-old girl last June in LaRue County, was sentenced Monday to 30 years in prison.
Dye, 29, admitted in LaRue Circuit Court to taking a sleeping child from his residence into a wooded area behind his house on River Road and attempting to rape her. Dye also admitted to attempting to choke her when she resisted the sexual assault.
Dye was sentenced to 15 years for attempted first-degree rape; 15 years for attempted murder; 20 years on an amended charge of kidnapping without physical injury; and 12 months on a misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest, all with time to run concurrently. He also was sentenced to 10 years for first-degree sexual abuse to run consecutively for a total of 30 years.
Dye must complete 20 percent of his sentence before becoming eligible for parole. He is required to register as a sex offender and complete a sex offender treatment program before he is considered for parole.
He pleaded guilty to the charges in November.
The girl’s mother submitted an impact statement, which the judge read in court Monday.
