PORTLAND, OREGON:  A pedophile was sentenced to 270 years in prison on Tuesday for "raping and molesting" three young girls for two years while their mother was away dealing drugs.

Andrew F. Kowalczyk was in charge of babysitting an 8-year-old along with 2-year-old twin sisters at a Southeast Portland apartment between 2005 and 2007 while their single mother sold crack cocaine on the streets.

The eldest sister, who was now 23 years old, told District Judge Michael W. Mosman that the convicted pedophile, who was a family friend, would give her ice cream and back massages until she fell asleep, Oregon Live reported. 

“It turns out that Andrew was actually a monster,” she said. “I know now that he was doing something to my sisters and I (sic) so that he could rape and molest us.’’

On December 27, 2007, he was arrested on unrelated charges in Puyallup, Washington. On the cameras and a hard drive seized from the backpack that he was carrying, authorities found 650 child pornography images and videos. After the images were released to the public in an effort to identify the victims, the mother of the three girls contacted the police. She also testified during the trial, telling the court Kowalczyk plied the children with toys, food, and gifts and paid for motel rooms in Portland.

“What this defendant did to these children is simply unexplainable,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Scott Kerin said at the hearing. “In terms of the sexual exploitation and abuse of children, this defendant is the worst this courthouse has ever seen… Defendant showed no remorse. He will always be a predatory sex offender as long as he lives. No other child should suffer at his hands."

Kowalczyk was never charged with rape and was only ever booked on nine counts of producing child pornography. The maximum recommended sentence of 30 years for each of the nine counts to run consecutively was accepted by Kerin. 

“Crimes like this one are like a Category 5 hurricane,” Mosman told Kowalcyzk, adding that he had wiped out the victims' present and destroyed their future. 

Due to the trove of lewd and sadistic images the jurors had to view in the case, they had to be offered psychiatric counseling.

As soon his sentence was handed down to him, the 480 pound-defendant, who sat in a wheelchair, stuck his middle finger up at the judge and yelled, “You’re a corrupt piece of s**t.”

Immediately after his outburst in the court, marshals hurried him out of the room. 

Due to a stream of unsuccessful efforts to suppress the evidence, as well as multiple competency exams, Kowalczyk finally went to trial in December 2018, almost 11 years after his arrest.
