For Richard G.B.: Bridget E. Boyle

Issue/Holding: Sentence of 18 years for sexual assault of a child (mouth-vagina intercourse with 15 year-old niece) wasn’t harsh and excessive, measured against a maximum possible sentence of 20 years. Trial court also “articulated its reasoning for the sentence and considered the appropriate factors” (namely, primary sentencing factors, weighed against Richard’s character). ¶¶18-21.
