McNew gets nine years for sexual abuse

(Continued)

TOWN OF LOCKPORT —

Prior to McNew’s sentencing, the victim spoke in court about how the incident with McNew had affected her. The victim said   she battled depression and suicidal thoughts, it even caused rifts in some personal relationships. Isolation and poor grades   followed.

“(He) has ripped my life apart,” the victim said. “It makes me sick.”

Still, the victim said she did not want McNew to spend his life in prison. Some time would be good for him, the victim said,   but she wanted McNew to get help for his anger and alcohol issues.

Both Donatello and Murphy said the victim had been consistent with the events that took place that night. Evidence also backed   up her story, Donatello said. 

Murphy received letters of support from McNew’s family, but it did not sway the judge.

“In my opinion, a jury would have believed you,” Murphy told the victim. “I believe you.”

McNew declined a chance to speak in court.
