Prosecutor John Tyrrell states, “I want to thank Chief Hanger and Officer Bogart for the result in this case.  The defendant received an eight-year sentence in prison with probation denied.  This defendant will have to register as a sex offender for life and will serve time in prison.  We were able to accomplish the joint goals identified by the victim’s family and my office.”
