A grandfather who raped his 11-year-old granddaughter and got her pregnant has been sentenced to 200 years in prison.

Mikeal Shane Pruett, of Stevensville, Mont., also molested the girl’s younger sister. A judge sentenced him to 100 years each on two incest charges.

Ravalli County District Judge Jeffrey Langton said the 55-year-old man had little potential for rehabilitation because he had a history of being a sexual predator, according to WTVR-TV.

“You seem to lack any semblance of a conscience,” the judge said last week, the Missoulian reported.

The girl gave birth in August. She told child welfare authorities that her grandfather had prompted her to say she had a boyfriend who was responsible for her pregnancy.

She didn’t know she was pregnant until a doctor diagnosed her at 32 weeks, she said.

“I didn’t know what pregnant felt like. So I didn’t know,” she told child advocates.

She also said she had seen her grandfather molest her sister at age 9.
