Terry Wayne King has been sentenced to life in prison for the brutal attack on 12-year-old, Dorika Uwimana last year.

The young victim was beaten so badly by King she needed 3 surgeries, including a heart transplant, to save her life.

Dorika, who speaks limited English, managed to escape King and was able to get to a bus where she reported the attack to a school bus driver.

The bus driver called police and Dorika was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

King was found guilty of assault causing bodily injury to a child and attempted aggravated kidnapping on Tuesday.

Dorika, who was 12-years-old at the time of the 2018 attack, appeared in court Monday where she came face-to-face with King and said he was a “bad man.”

Police said the vicious attack near the school bus stop was unprovoked and the motive was unknown.
