HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A former Marine is heading to prison for raping a girl in a Waikiki hotel in 2008. 29-year-old, Christopher Cantrell was sentenced to 30 years in prison.

In 2008 Cantrell beat a man unconscious at a waikiki hotel after asking if he could take nude pictures of the man's daughter. Cantrell then raped the 10-year old. Earlier this year he pleaded guilty to burglary, assault, kidnapping and sexual assault.

Cantrell who is from South Carolina, was dishonorably discharged from the Marine Corps in 2005.
