during the sentencing hearing Thursday. Wearing a Bikers Against Child Abuse denim vest she said Wolf verbally abused her, manipulated her head and heart and put false thoughts into her head.
“He is nothing now,” she said. “He is not related to me. He has no part in my life. I am finally free.”
The little girl who had her childhood stolen from her, she said, “is finally reaching the surface.
“I refuse to let anyone take that from me,” she said. “I am me again.”
Silow praised the girl’s courage calling her a remarkable example.
“He took your childhood, betrayed and poisoned your mind,” he said. “But you took back your life.”
Assistant District Attorney Stew Ryan agreed with Silow.
“(She) displayed tremendous courage today in getting up and taking the opportunity to face the person that victimized her,” he said. “She is bound for great things.”
An investigation of Wolf began in August 2015 when the victim’s mother notified Ambler police about her discovery of an inappropriate relationship between the victim and Wolf, who knew the family.
When detectives interviewed the victim, she disclosed that she and Wolf engaged in various sexual acts on numerous occasions since she was 12 and at various locations in the borough, including at the borough park. During the sexual contact, Wolf allegedly told the victim, “It’s okay babe. You are not going to get in trouble. Just don’t say anything,” according to the criminal complaint filed by Ambler Detective Chad Cassel.
When confronted about the allegations, Wolf admitted to touching the girl inappropriately, to kissing her and to telling her he loved her and that she was pretty, according to the criminal complaint.
“Wolf stated that he and (the victim) have had sex talk about what they would do to each other,” Cassel alleged. “A search of Wolf’s cellphone was conducted and revealed several conversations that were sexual in nature involving (the victim) and Wolf.”
The victim told authorities that Wolf also took photos of her while she was nude.
