Fred Mott will serve 60 years in prison for the murder of Kari Ann Nunemaker, who was 16 at the time of her death in 1991.

Judge George Biddlecome pronounced the sentence this afternoon, several weeks after a jury found Mott sexually abused and killed Kari.

More than 20 of Kari’s family members and friends turned out but chose not to speak at the sentencing, instead giving a letter to Biddlecome. Even one of the jurors in the case attended the sentencing to see the case through.

Now that his Indiana case is concluded, Mott will return to California to serve his six consecutive life sentences for violent sex crimes.

Mott said there was no evidence he killed Kari other than two witnesses with questionable credibility and said his attorneys didn’t do their jobs. He admitted to being a rapist -- though not specifically admitting to raping Kari -- but said he’s not a killer, and said the case was grandstanding by Prosecutor Curtis Hill.

He plans to appeal his sentence.

Hill said Mott’s “beyond redemption” and “in all likelihood should and would burn in hell.”
