Maryland Man Handed 420 Years for a Series of Sexual Assaults on Young Girls

The man had gained the trust of the children’s mother.

BALTIMORE (AP) — A Maryland man has been sentenced to 420 years in prison for a series of sexual assaults on three girls who were between 2 and 4 years old when they were targeted for abuse.

U.S. Attorney Robert Hur described Kyle Thompson’s assaults on the young children as “horrific.”

The 33-year-old Burtonsville man took video recordings of his assaults, which occurred from May 2015 to January 2017. Court filings say the commercial HVAC technician had gained the trust of the youngsters’ mothers.

An affidavit filed in the case says Thompson could be seen on one video assaulting a child who was restrained on a bed and crying for her mother.

Thompson was sentenced Wednesday. He was convicted in September on 18 counts of producing child pornography.
