Judge Robert -Wolf sentenced a 64 year old man to six years behind bars for sexually abusing one of his granddaughters who was still a baby from 3 years of age to 5 years.

Part of the report says sexual abuse to the girl by her grandfather occurred over a period of 20 months between 2009 and 2012.
