Marietta man sentenced to life in prison for raping little girl

A Cobb County man has been sentenced to life in prison for repeatedly raping a little girl.

Mario Esteban Sanchez, 58, was convicted last month of raping the child multiple times at his Franklin Road apartment, which began when she was 5-years-old. Authorities said Sanchez was related to the victim by marriage when the attacks occurred, and was also convicted of two counts of child molestation. He was arrested in 2015.
