“I take responsibility for this dark period in my life. I am willing to accept punishment, whatever is decided. It will be God’s will. I deserve to be punished,” the elder Sloan said.
Following a recess of more than 60 minutes, Judge Northam spoke briefly in open court regarding the sentencing issues requested by the prosecution prior to rendering the court’s decision.
“We all are at a loss as to why this took place. The hardship to the family has already taken place. The court is willing to consider the fact that Mr. Sloan accepts responsibility and regarding health issues, there is nothing the court can do about that. In regards to the charges of molestation and incest, the major issue is a loss of trust,” Judge Northam said.
Sloan was sentenced to seven years on the class “C” felony charge of child molestation and 13 years on the class “B” felony charge of incest, with the sentences to be served consecutively at an unnamed IDOC facility.
