Sean Humby - 9 years for molesting boys in Day Care

Before 20-year-old Sean M. Humby was ordered to prison for nine years, the boy's father said Humby's actions transformed an innocent child into one "who now views the world through cynical eyes."

"I will never forgive you for what you did," the father told Humby, "not only to my son, but to all the other boys you victimized."
Man guilty of abusing three boys sentenced to nine years

Sean HumbyIt was an emotional day for the parents of children who were sexually abused at a daycare center. Sean Humby, 20, pleaded guilty and admitted to sexually abusing three boys at Love and Laughter Daycare in Riga.

In court today, Assistant District Attorney Matt Rich asked for the maximum sentence of nine years for Humby and that is the sentence he received. Humby will also have to register as a sex offender when he's released.

One of the victim’s parents spoke directly to Humby in court saying, “No words can describe the amount of hatred I feel towards you, I will never forgive you for what you have done".

The assistant district attorney says this has been a very painful process for the victims. Rich said, “They're all very very hurt about what happened, but considering the circumstances and considering that the boys did not have to come in and testify, this was the best outcome that we could provide to the families. I believe they're satisfied with what we were able to do.”

Rich says the three boys are all under twelve years old and they are going through counseling.

The defense attorney says Humby was also sexually abused as a young boy and they hope his guilty plea will help stop the cycle of abuse.
