SAPULPA, Okla. (AP) – A Sapulpa man who was linked by DNA taken from a cup of lemonade to the rape and abduction of a 12-year-old girl has been sentenced to 120 years in prison.

Fifty-one-year-old Kevin Leroy Smith received three consecutive 40-year prison terms Wednesday. Smith had pleaded guilty to rape charges.

Prosecutors say Smith kidnapped the girl outside a Glenpool apartment complex in 2013 and drove the girl to a construction site, where he took off her clothes, fondled her and took pictures of her before a woman confronted him. Prosecutors say Smith then drove behind a residence and raped the girl before giving her $40 and dropping her off at her home.

Tulsa police say they matched DNA from the incident to DNA recovered from a cup after being notified that a man attempted to abduct two girls working at a lemonade stand in March 2014.
