After being thumped on the head with a frying pan, all-around terrible person Kevin Funderburk got the book thrown at him. He was sentenced to 21 years in prison last week for attempting to rape a 71-year-old woman in her home in December, the Hutchinson News reports.
Back in December, Funderburk told the woman that he was homeless and looking for a place to sleep and warm up. Then he tried to assault her. But the victim wasn't having it. At the time, Hutchinson police Sgt. John Moore described it to
the Hutch News this way: "She beat him down with a frying pan." He was unconscious when police arrived on the scene.
Earlier this month, Funderburk pleaded guilty to attempted rape. Judge Joe McCarville gave him the maximum
sentence and a lecture in court last week. "You're
lucky she was able to defend herself,
and you're lucky she didn't just finish you off," he scolded Funderburk,
who declined to make a statement or, you know, apologize.
The victim has taken the high road throughout the process, telling
Funderburk during sentencing, "I mainly
want to say I'm sorry this whole ordeal
had to happen. I have forgiven
you for the wrong you've done
