A Wichita man who sexually abused three young children related to women he knew or dated has been ordered to serve nine consecutive life sentences.

61-year-old Nathen Brazille was sentenced on nine counts for abusing children as young as 6 or 7 years old, between 2016 and 2018.

Under Kansas law, sex crimes against children younger than 14 carry a presumptive sentence of life with eligibility for parole after 25 years.

Because a judge ordered the nine sentences to be served consecutively, Brazille would have to serve 225 years in prison before being eligible for parole, said Sedgwick County District Attorney Marc Bennett.

Brazille was convicted in September 2019 of multiple counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child, attempted aggravated criminal sodomy, rape and attempted rape.
