Rodney Bramlett Sentenced to Life for Sexually Abusing Child
For the second time this year, a convicted child sex offender was given life in prison.
Rodney Bramlett, 34, was convicted of Predatory Criminal Sexual Assault of a child and Aggravated Criminal Sexual Abuse. Bramlett was found guilty of sexually abusing more than one child under the age of 13.
This is the second time in three months that the Winnebago County State's Attorneys Office has sentenced a convicted child sex offender to life in prison. Ronnie Watts was given life for sexually assaulting a 9-year-old.
"Permanently separating convicted sexual predators from society sends a strong message that Winnebago County will not tolerate these crimes," said Winnebago County State's Attorney Joe Bruscato.
