Kanawha County man sentenced for sexual abuse
A Kanawha County man offered an apology in court, and was then handed a 10 to 25 year prison sentence for sexually abusing his friend's nine-year old daughter. Prosecutors say the victim's mother allowed Hamrick to stay in her home while he got his life back in order, and that's when the assault happened. He was out of jail on probation at the time. Hamrick blames a drug addiction. Hamrick is already serving one to five years in prison on unrelated burglary charges.
