An Ohio man admitted to raping a 5-year-old after luring her with a Pudding Pop and had the gaul to then he blame the child victim at his sentencing.

A Lake County judge sentenced Clifford Taylor to 22 years in prison after forcing his girlfriend’s daughter to perform oral sex on him, Ohio’s News-Herald reported.

As the judge delivered the maximum sentence, Taylor, 51 tried to withdraw a guilty plea he made in October.

During the sentencing, the vile rapo repeated that the tot performed oral sex on him, however he he told the judge she initiated the act.

“She grabbed me. She was experimenting. I was drunk and realized it too late,” Taylor said. He also said his lawyers pressured him into the plea deal.

Taylor attempted to back step from the statement he made at an Oct. 15 court appearance.

At that time, he explained that he raped the 5-year-old between January 2012 and July 2013 in her own home. He said he encouraged the girl to perform sex acts on him by bribing her with a Pudding Pop.

“She wanted a snack,” he said at the time.

The child then told her mother about the abuse, and she went to the police.

Taylor’s confession helped him avoid life in prison and instead he will serve 22 years in prison and will be a registered sex offender for life instead.
