A child molester has been given a quarter-century behind bars after two girls came forward to tell their stories of sexual abuse.
The defendant, Robert Daniel Rembiszewski, 41, entered a best-interest plea before Circuit Court Judge Bart Stanley to two counts of rape. He was sentenced to serve 25 years at 100 percent, meaning he has no hope of parole.
“The incidents began in another state and continued when they arrived here,” said McMinnville police detective Todd Rowland, who described the sexual abuse as long term. “They were of a young age when it began.”
The crimes for which Rembiszewski entered pleas happened in 2006 and 2007. The victims did not come forward for many years after the molestations when one of the victims was an adult and had already started her own family.
Specifically, the elder of the two girls became aware the younger girl had become subject to Rembiszewski’s advances just as she had been and decided he had to be stopped. The younger girl also came forward, both corroborating each other’s recollections regarding the years of abuse.
“He admitted to it,” said Rowland. As part of his sentence, Rembiszewski is to have no contact with the victims or their family.
