After getting four life sentences for sexually assaulting young girl, man asks if death penalty is an option
"I wonder whether or not lethal injection was an option," Eschenbrenner said to Judge N. William Delker just before the judge handed down the consecutive prison terms.
The abuse happened on a regular basis between 2002 and 2007, beginning when the girl was age seven.
The verdict marked Eschenbrenner's third conviction of aggravated felonious sexual assault, making him eligible for a potential life sentence under New Hampshire law.
"I don't know if I have ever met a more narcissistic sex offender," Blanchard said.
Delker heard sworn testimony from a 31-year-old man who testified that he was sexually abused by Eschenbrenner when he was between five and six years old.
"He had sexual desires that went beyond what I would consider normal," the woman testified.
Delker told Eschenbrenner that the death penalty was not an option in his case, but that he would never walk free again from the walls of the state prison.
The judge also chastised Eschenbrenner for attempting suicide in April just as jury selection was underway for his trial.
Defense lawyer Brett Newkirk said his client instructed him not to make a legal argument for the hearing.
In addition to the four consecutive life sentences, Eschenbrenner received on Friday concurrent life sentences on the remaining sexual assault charges. He was also sentenced three to six years in prison for witness tampering.
