The sentencing hearing in the state’s case against Michael Privette, convicted of multiple sexual assaults, including in Bolton Hill, took place on Wednesday, Sept. 21.
As reported in the Baltimore Sun, Privette pleaded guilty to four instances of sexual assault and was sentenced Wednesday to life in prison with all but 40 years suspended.
Six women and three men from Bolton Hill attended the hearing in support of the victims. A community victim impact statement was written on behalf of the neighborhood and submitted to Assistant State’s Attorney Trey Perkins, who read the statement before Judge Wanda K. Heard.
The hearing closed this case just a year after the Bolton Hill crimes occurred. For more on the hearing and the cases involved, please see the full Sun article.
