Man Gets 206 Years for Sexual Assaults

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

A man who sexually assaulted a male transvestite and two transgendered women at gunpoint last summer was sentenced Friday to 206 years in state prison.

Joel Kuechmann, 40, was convicted in April on nine felony counts, including three counts of oral copulation by force, rape by a foreign object and robbery. Prosecutors said Kuechmann preyed on people who were less likely to report the crimes.

“Realistically, he will not live to a point where he will be eligible for parole,” said prosecutor Dwayne Moring.
