SHELBY COUNTY, Tenn. — Florida sex offender Marc Anthony Baechtle has been sentenced 25-years for raping the same child in Tennessee.

Anthony was already serving 15-years for raping the same child in Florida.

He will finish the remaining eight years of his Florida sentence before he begins his Tennessee sentence, which carries no parole.

Authorities said Baechtle’s sexual assaults on the child began when she was ten years old and continued for several years and in several states.

In a statement to the court, Baechtle said. “I am sorry for my actions and I hope you give me the maximum sentence because I deserve it.”

Baechtle will be on the Tennessee Sex Offender Registry and under Community Supervision for life.
