A Delaware man who sexually assaulted a young Montgomery County boy dozens of times over six years was sentenced Thursday to 35 years in federal prison.
John Angell, 41, of Smyrna, was hired in 2001 to chauffeur the boy on weekends from the child's father's house in Blue Bell to the mother's house in Plainview, N.Y. He gained the trust of the boy, then 7, and began abusing him, prosecutors said. The abuse continued until 2007.
A jury convicted Angell in November of traveling to have sex with a minor and aggravated sexual abuse of a child. In addition to the prison time, Angell was ordered to serve 15 years' supervised release and to pay a $1,000 fine. - Sam Wood
