SALISBURY, Md.- A Wicomico County Circuit Court judge sentenced a Hebron man convicted of child sexual abuse to life imprisonment on Tuesday.
The life sentence for 35-year-old Joshua A. Huffman includes a mandatory minimum of 15 years behind bars. On July 23, Huffman was convicted by a Wicomico County jury of sexual abuse of minor, second-degree sexual offense, third-degree sexual offense, second-degree assault and causing ingestion of bodily fluids.
Court records show that Huffman sexually abused a 5-year-old girl at his home on West Walnut Street in February.
Wicomico County State's Attorney Matthew A. Maciarello commended the Wicomico Child Advocacy Center and its partners (Maryland State Police, Wicomico County Sheriff's Office, Salisbury Police Department, Department of Social Services and Life Crisis Center). He also thanked Senior Assistant State's Attorney Jamie Dykes, who prosecuted the case.
