Philadelphia – Andrew Smith was sentenced today to 7 to 14 years in prison by the Honorable Judge Glynnis Hill.
The 22-year old former martial arts instructor was found guilty of two counts of Rape of a Child under 13, and other related offenses last year.
Smith was convicted by a jury in July 2010, of sexually assaulting two 12-year old girls enrolled at classes at a martial arts facility in the Olney section of the City. The children did not know each other. Smith was both a student and an instructor. He used those roles to befriend and build trust with the girls and their families.
ADA Branwen McNabb successfully prosecuted this case.
