Child molester handed de facto life sentence

(Continued)

The day after the victim's testimony, Remy was found guilty of counts of child molest and performing sexual acts in the presence of a minor.

After the trial, the victim said he was very nervous during testimony, and that he was relieved the entire process was over.

Cummings said the sentence was "absolutely" appropriate, considering Remy's crimes.

"In my experience, people that have those propensities, it's very rare for them to be rehabilitated. Even if it's a case when the person knows they're doing something wrong, and wants to stop, most of them have trouble stopping. So, my priority is to do what you can to keep children safe," Cummings said.

The prosecutor also said he hopes the guilty verdict and sentence offers the victim and his family some peace of mind.

"When you've suffered that kind of wrong, it's possible that nothing will make it right again," he said. "Still, I think the sentence might give them some relief."
