A Brimfield man will serve at least 15 years in prison before he is eligible for parole after pleading guilty earlier this year to raping and molesting a young girl.

Michael O. Mitchell, 35, was sentenced Monday by Judge Laurie Pittman on rape, sexual battery and gross sexual imposition charges for assaulting an underage girl in February. He pleaded guilty to three felonies in May.

Also labeled a Tier III sex offender, he will be required to register his address with his local sheriff's office every 90 days for the rest of his life, if ever released from prison.

"You're a true predator," Pittman told Mitchell.
