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.

He also thanked Senior Assistant State's Attorney Jamie Dykes, who prosecuted the case.
