A 41-year-old Delaware man is behind bars after being sentenced in federal court to 35 years in prison for sexually assaulting a 7-year-old Blue Bell boy on 12 separate occasions.
According to the Philly.com, John Angell, of Smyrna, Del., was hired to transport the boy and a sibling between their mother's home in Plainview, N.Y. and their father's home in Blue Bell.
The father reportedly hired Angell in 2001 and employed him over a six year period to drive the children, according to court documents. During that time, Angell was occasionally alone with the 7-year-old on several occasions and sexually assaulted him while stopped at various rest areas between New York and Pennsylvania until sometime in 2007.
Angell was reportedly convicted in Nov. 2011 and sentenced on Thursday to 35 years in prison and 15 of supervised release. The judge also ordered Angell to pay a $2,200 special assessment and a $1,000 fine.
