Wicomico County Man Sentenced to Additional 40 Years for Child Sex Abuse

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md.- A Wicomico County judge has sentenced an Eden man to an additional 40 years in prison for sexual abuse of a minor.

Clarence Wilkins Powell, 75, was already serving a 10-year sentence for a 2014 conviction of sexual abuse of a minor.

On Wednesday, Circuit Court Judge S. James Sarbanes sentenced Powell to 40 years in the Division of Corrections for one count of sexual abuse of a minor and one count of second degree sexual offense.

Sarbanes accepted Powell’s guilty plea prior to imposing his sentence. The sentence will run consecutive to the 10-year sentence that Powell is currently serving in DOC.

According to the Wicomico County State's Attorney's Office, Powell’s guilty plea is as a result of his repeated sexual abuse of a child under the age of 10 and over a two-year period.

The abuse occurred prior to him being convicted in 2014 for sexually abusing a different child under the age of 13.
