HEBRON, Md. - A Hebron man, convicted of sexual offense and sexual abuse of a minor, is sentenced to life in prison, officials say.

Wicomico County State's Attorney Matt Maciarello says Joshua Huffman, 38, will serve a life sentence in the Division of Corrections, and he will have to register for life as a Tier III Sex Offender. 

Huffman was convicted for a second time in May of 2015 for sexually abusing a five-year-old child in his home on West Walnut Street in February of 2012. Maciarello says Huffman was previously convicted in 2012 of the same offenses, but the Court of Special Appeals reversed the conviction in December of 2014 and awarded Huffman a new trial.

Wicomico County State's Attorney Matthew A. Maciarello commended the members of the Child Advocacy Center and Detective Seichepine of the Wicomico County Sheriff's Office for their work in the investigation and prosecution of this case. Mr. Maciarello also thanked Senior Assistant State's Attorney, Karen M. Dean, who prosecuted the case.
