Man Sentenced For Sexually Abusing Toddler

WESTMINSTER, Md. (AP) — A Westminster man has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for abusing a female toddler.

Ryan Gifford , 24, was sentenced Thursday in Carroll County Circuit Court. Judge J. Barry Hughes called the abuse “depraved and selfish torture.”

The child was taken to an emergency room on April 10, 2010, where she was found to have bruises, cuts and burns.

The toddler’s mother told police she and Gifford bought alcohol after she put the child to bed. She awoke to find Gifford and the child naked on the bathroom floor with blood on the girl’s lips and ears.

Gifford declined to speak at sentencing.

    The first stage of his punishment is decided.

    The inmates will decide what comes next.

    God bless.

    He should serve every second of his sentence.

  5. Justice says:

    Put him in a cell until the poor little girl is old enough to fire a rifle.
    Then let her do what comes naturally, blow the animal’s brains out.

    Finally, some justice for a child. Now, the mother needs to be charged with endangering the child, she lacks judgment and should bear some responsibility for what happened to that innocent little angel, God help that little girl if somebody is not watching out for her.

  7. Tracee says:

    Does someone know a murdered in jail who will exact ‘justice’ on him. He should be raped, shanked and left to be found just like his victim. And, sorry, the mother is sorry as well!!!!!
