Vienna man tries to blame rape on
4-year-old victim

A 47-year-old man will spend the next 15 years in state prison for sexually abusing a 4-year-old girl after he tried to pin it all on the girl.

Gordon Meeker, 47, of 8419 Teelin Road, Vienna, was sentenced by County Court Judge Barry M. Donalty Friday on a charge of first-degree criminal sexual act. Meeker was also sentenced to 20 years of post-release supervision.

According to court documents, Meeker had sexual contact with the 4-year-old girl in Vienna in September.

According to Judge Donalty, when Meeker was interviewed by the county Probation Department prior to sentencing, Meeker tried to blame the encounter on the 4-year-old girl. Donalty said he was "disgusted" with Meeker and his actions.

"That’s about as cowardly an act as I can ever imagine," Donalty told Meeker before sentencing him to the 15 years. "I hope that every day you spend in state prison, Mr. Meeker, is a miserable day."

Meeker said nothing on his own behalf.
