ATLANTA — A Georgia ice cream man and convicted child molester has been sentenced to 25 years in prison and life on probation for raping a 14-year-old girl inside his work truck.

News outlets report the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office says 45-year-old Khabir Daniel has been convicted on charges including aggravated child molestation and statutory rape. A statement by the office released Thursday says Atlanta police received a call last month about a parked ice cream truck “rocking in a back and forth motion.”

The release says Daniel told responding officers he and his “girlfriend” were just kissing. It says the victim told officers she was underage. She told police she had worked for Daniel since 2018.

“I should have pulled away from that little girl, but she was like a drug,” Daniel said in a jail call to his wife, according to the DA’s office. “It’s like an addiction. These are urges that I have deep inside me.”

Daniel was previously convicted of child molestation.
