A Wichita man was given a life sentence for a series of child sex crimes. 61-year-old Nathan Brazille was convicted in 2019 of nine counts involving three separate underage victims.
Brazille’s sentencing hearing was delayed when a new attorney was appointed for him, and a hearing was held in December on the effectiveness of his trial lawyer. In a hearing this week, Sedgwick County District Judge Jeffrey Syrios denied a motion for a new trial, finding that Brazille had received effective help from his attorney during a jury trial.
Brazille was given a statutory life sentence on each count with parole eligibility after 25 years, but he made each of the nine counts consecutive for a sentence of life in prison without parole eligibility for 225 years.
