KENT, Wash. —

A judge has handed a nearly eight-year prison term to a teenage boy who beat and raped an 8-year-old girl in Kent last fall.

KOMO-TV reports (http://is.gd/yphB28 ) King County Superior Court Judge Bill Bowman sentenced the 14-year-old defendant to 93 months. The boy was charged as an adult and pleaded guilty to first-degree rape.

The boy, who stands 6 feet tall and weighs roughly 230 pounds, assaulted and raped the girl in November 2013. The girl is 4 feet tall and weighs 90 pounds.

The girl said she had seen the boy with her older brother, so she went with him when he came to her house and said he had a surprise for her. He took her to the woods behind a Red Lion hotel.

She was only wearing socks and a shirt when she reported the attack to hotel employees.
