Court: Man who tracked sex abuse earned 2,546-year term
TOWANDA | A Pennsylvania appeals court says a child molester who marked a calendar each time he molested a victim for 20 years deserves the 1,031- to 2,546-year prison term he received.
Pennlive.com reported that a Superior Court panel upheld Wednesday the sentence a Bradford County judge imposed on Donald Burrell, 59.
Burrell was convicted of more than 200 sex crimes in 2015 stemming from his abuse of the victim starting when she was 7.
He also had her sign “agreements” allowing him to touch her sexually.
Burrell appealed, claiming he has dementia and was not competent to stand trial. But the appeals court agreed with the judge, who found Burrell was faking the illness.
