Delaware Man Sentenced To 35 Years In Sex Travelling Case

PHILADELPHIA - John Angell, 41, of Smyrna, DE, was sentenced today to 35 years in prison for his conviction on 11 counts of traveling to have sex with a minor and 1 counts of aggravated sexual abuse of a child under the age of 12. Between June 2001 and June 2007, Angell, while working as a driver for the father of Minor 1, would drive the victim between the father’s house in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania and the mother’s house in the state of New York. On several occasions during that time period, Angell sexually assaulted Minor 1 while stopped at various rest areas.

In addition to the prison term, U.S. District Court Judge William H. Yohn, Jr. ordered 15 of supervised release, and ordered Angell to pay a $2,200 special assessment and a $1,000 fine.

The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Michelle Morgan.
