Registered sex offender, Corbin James Breitenbach, has been charged with raping a seven-year-old girl in a stranger’s apartment in Kansas just six weeks after he was freed from prison for another rape.
Breitenbach was charged on Tuesday with attempted capital murder, aggravated criminal sodomy and aggravated burglary stemming from last week’s attack in Wichita.
Dressed in an orange regulation uniform, Breitenbach said little during his first appearance other than to ask his bond amount. When he was told it was $1million, he shook his head.
Breitenbach was arrested at his place of employment last week. He was booked into jail on charges of attempted first-degree murder, aggravated burglary, aggravated sodomy, and rape of a child under the age of 13.
The station KSN reported, citing charging documents, that prosecutors will argue that ‘the defendant’s conduct during the commission of the offense manifested excessive brutality to the victim in a manner not normally present in that offense.’ 23,
The 23-year-old registered sex offender was sentenced to 68 months in prison for choking and raping a 22-year-old woman in 2012, reported Wichita Eagle.
Sedgwick County DA Marc Bennett – ‘the defendant’s conduct during the commission of the offense manifested excessive brutality to the victim in a manner not normally present in that offense.’ DA Marc Bennett charged Breitenbach with attempted capital murder
The attack happened at around 2.40am on June 11. Police said he entered a second-floor apartment where the girl was staying for the night with a friend, without forcing entry and without permission.
A $1million? I don’t think I can do that. Dressed in regulation orange, Breitenbach said little during his first appearance, just shook his head at the bond amount
Charging documents said Breitenbach, standing at 6 feet and weighing 180lbs, removed the girl from a bedroom, choked her until she was unconscious, raped her on an outdoor balcony and took off.
Sedgwick County District Attorney Marc Bennett said he saw the girl on Tuesday and that she is doing ‘better’ and has been out of the hospital for days.
Cops say Breitenbach entered a second-floor apartment in this Wichita, Kansas Condo complex, removed the victim from a bedroom and proceeded to rape her on an outdoor balcony
He could have been released as early as December but wasn’t because of 32 prison disciplinary reports, according to the Kansas Department of Corrections.
The condo where the child was attacked is directly across a small courtyard from where Breitenbach’s girlfriend lives.
Police arrested Breitenbach on Thursday at his place of work.
Breitenbach said in a financial affidavit filed with the court that he worked at Joe’s Car Wash and made $800 a month. He wrote that he lives with his mother and grandmother in Derby and doesn’t own a vehicle.
Breitenbach’s girlfriend, who wished to remain anonymous, told The Wichita Eagle that on the morning of the incident, the man was asleep in bed with her after the couple returned home at around 2.30am, ‘give or take a few minutes.’
About 30 feet separate the balcony at the girlfriend’s apartment and the one where the rape took place.
Breitenbach’s family said in a audio recorded statement to the Wichita Eagle that they are in ‘utter shock and disbelief.’
‘It is impossible to communicate the depth of our sorrow and the grief we feel for the victim and her family,’ they stated.
In his teens, Breitenbach had planned to join the US Marine Corps. Those hopes were dashed when in 2012 he was arrested for raping a 22-year-old woman
A relative of the suspect’s revealed that as a child, Breitenbach and his siblings spent time in foster care. His dreams of joining the Marine Corps in his teens, ended with his 2013 conviction for the 2012 rape of a 22-year-old woman. On the day of that attack the victim’s fiance recalled, he returned home to find his then-girlfriend lying unconscious on the bed. When she came to, she could not walk.
The last thing she remembered was Breitenbach putting her in a chokehold and squeezing her neck until she passed out.
He was convicted of rape in March 2013 and sentenced to serve five years and eight months in prison for the assault
