Police: Convicted rapist out on parole attacked 7-year-old girl

(INSIDE EDITION)- A convicted rapist has been arrested and charged with sexually assaulting a 7-year-old girl, just six weeks after he was released from prison, authorities said.

Corbin Breitenbach, 23, a registered sex offender, was charged this week with attempted capital murder, aggravated criminal sodomy and aggravated burglary.

The Kansas man is being held in lieu of $1 million bail.

He had been sentenced to 68 months behind bars for choking and raping a 22-year-old woman in Wichita. He was paroled in April.

He is now accused of entering a condo where the young girl was sleeping, choking her into unconsciousness, and raping her, prosecutors said.

Breitenbach took the child, who he did not know, from a bedroom and assaulted her on a balcony, authorities said.

She had been hospitalized after the June 11 attack, but is now doing fine, District Attorney Marc Bennett told reporters Tuesday.

A phone message left with Bennett's office Thursday was not immediately returned.

Breitenbach's preliminary hearing is scheduled for July 5. If convicted, he could face life in prison.
