NOR­RIS­TOWN » Mont­gomery County Court Judge Gary S. Silow told An­drew Wolf he was lucky. If prose­cu­tors and his de­fense at­tor­ney hadn’t worked out a sen­tenc­ing agree­ment, he would have thrown the book at him for his crimes.

On Thurs­day, Silow sen­tenced Wolf, 30, of the 300 block of East But­ler Av­enue in Am­bler, to 10 to 40 years in prison af­ter he pleaded guilty to felony charges of rape of a child, statu­tory sex­ual as­sault and in­vol­un­tary de­vi­ate sex­ual in­ter­course in con­nec­tion with in­ci­dents that oc­curred be­tween 2013 and 2015 when the girl was be­tween 12 and 14 years old. Wolf was 28 and 29 at the time of the in­ci­dents.

“I would have sent you away for the rest of your life,” Silow said, call­ing Wolf’s ac­tions shame­ful and pa­thetic. Wolf faced a max­i­mum penalty of 30 to 60 years for his crimes.

Silow or­dered Wolf to be listed as a sex­u­ally vi­o­lent preda­tor, which means in ad­di­tion to reg­is­ter­ing with au­thor­i­ties as a sex of­fender un­der Me­gan’s Law, he will also un­dergo ad­di­tional treat­ment and any com­mu­nity he chooses to live in will be no­ti­fied by au­thor­i­ties of his sex­u­ally vi­o­lent preda­tor sta­tus. Wolf must never come in con­tact with his vic­tim ever again and must also never be al­lowed to be in the pres­ence of a mi­nor again with­out an­other adult present. Wolf’s vic­tim took the stand
