A former Jarrettsville woman has been sentenced to 80 years in prison for the sexual abuse of a 5-year-old girl.
Angeline Feazelle, 30, was convicted of abusing the child when she was 5 and 6-years-old. The victim lived with Feazelle and her boyfriend, Jeremy Cochran in Jarrettsville at the time of the abuse.
In 2008, the girl disclosed the abuse and was immediately removed from the home. Feazelle and Cochran were charged with abuse and conspiracy to commit child abuse in 2012 after the girl was able to give further information about the abuse.
Feazelle was found guilty in January to the charges and was sentenced to the maximum of 80 years. Following her release she will also have to register as a sex offender.
The girl's father gave an impact statement at the sentencing hearing where he told the Court that Feazelle "took away his daughter's future by taking away her trust that can never be given back to her." He worries every day about her future and what the rest of her life will be like.
The State, represented by Diane A. Tobin, Deputy State's Attorney, asked that the court impose the maximum sentence for each count because of the horrific nature of the abuse and the fact that the girl resided in the same house as Feazelle and "had no alternative but to go back to that home every day to be abused by Feazelle and her boyfriend, Mr. Cochran".
Cochran was also convicted of similar charges and sentenced in early March to serve 80 years in prison.
