A man who was given three years probation for attempting to molest a six year old while volunteering at a school has now been sentenced for a separate incident involving a child.

The man is Peter Ivan McNeal, a drummer who played with Cake from 2001 to 2004. McNeal has also worked with Norah Jones, Mike Doughty, Miranda July, and others.

In 2009 McNeal molested a three year old girl at a Thanksgiving gathering.

Last year a jury found McNeal guilty of one count of oral copulation of a child under the age of 10. He has now been sentenced to 15 years to life.

He also has to register as a sex offender for life.

The incident with the three year old took place just weeks before the incident with the six year old.

    I mean, thank god theres some laws and justice right??

    Dont worry Paul, people like that pay dearly one way or another, not even hardened thug criminals like child molesters and certainly they will certainly pay him back…

    Now that poor girl will grow up with closets and have stuff to work out, poor poor girl, no one deserves that, especially a learning developing little girl!!

    Grrrrrr the world makes me mad something special man…
