BELLEFONTE, Pa. (AP) - A central Pennsylvania man who pleaded guilty to raping two young girls hundreds of times over the past few years has been sentenced to 50 to 100 years in prison.

The Centre Daily Times (https://bit.ly/1wk55CW ) reports that 33-year-old Eric Crader of Pleasant Gap was sentenced Tuesday in Centre County Court. He pleaded guilty in July to 213 counts of child rape.

District Attorney Stacy Parks Miller said in a statement that predators like him “who prey upon children and manipulate them with fear are the real monsters of some childhoods,”

Judge Bradley Lunsford said the details of the case left him “absolutely speechless.”
