Man pleads guilty to raping adopted daughter

OLYMPIA, WA Police say the sexual abuse occurred over a four-year period. Eddy Tony Whisenhunt, 51, faces more than 18 years in prison when he is sentenced next month in Thurston County Superior Court after pleading guilty Thursday to three counts of first-degree child rape.

The Olympian reports Whisenhunt's wife, Donna Marie, also faces child-rape charges.

Court papers say the abuse was discovered by a school counselor. The child was placed in the custody of Child Protective Services after the couple's arrest in May.
