A former school Maryland school volunteer who pleaded guilty to abusing nearly two dozen children in a case that stunned the Prince George’s County school system was sentenced Thursday to 100 years in prison. Deonte Carraway, 23, a former elementary teacher’s aide at Judge Sylvania Woods Elementary School, pleaded guilty to 23 counts of sex abuse and child pornography charges stemming from the abuse of children as young as nine and 10 years old.

 

Some of the abuse took place on school grounds and much of it was recorded via cellphone and social media apps, according to prosecutors. Carraway had been indicted last summer on a total of 270 state counts of child sex abuse and other charges.

 

At a sentencing hearing Thursday in the Prince George’s Courthouse in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, Carraway was sentenced to a total of 395 years, with all but 100 years of that sentence suspended.
