(Thomas Goodman: Rhode Island State Police)
A Rhode Island man fainted after hearing his sentence of 260 years behind bars. However, it is exactly what he deserved.
Thomas Goodman, 45, is accused of molesting several 6-year-old victims for six years. He also filmed himself sexually abusing an infant girl starting when she was just 3 weeks old until she was 18 months, according to the New York Post. Goodman even posted some of the disturbing footage online.
Goodman stayed passed out on the table for a few minutes until he awoke to the judge explaining the reasoning for the high sentence that will ensure the sick pedophile will never abuse a child again.
His sentencing was 160 years more than prosecutors had initially sought. Thirty years each for eight counts of sexually exploiting children and 20 years for one count of possessing sadistic and masochistic child pornography, all to be served consecutively, the Providence Journal reports.
Prosecutor Lee Vilker noted that Goodman had left his now 16-year-old victims “permanently scarred.”
“The level of depravity is beyond comprehension,’’ Judge John McConnell said during Friday's sentencing.
Goodman was finally caught when his bosses at Electric Boat, a submarine manufacturer, took his cellphone away for using it at work and discovered the horrific images on it.
