Child molester receives 15-yr sentence

A Seymour man will spend more than a decade in prison for sexually abusing a four-year-old child.

73-year-old Norbert DeGroot entered a no contest plea last year, to a first-degree sexual assault of a child charge and Judge Jeffery Froehlich sentenced him yesterday, to 15 years in prison.

Court records say he abused the child at least three times in winter and spring of 2006. DeGroot was previously convicted of second-degree sexual assault of a child in 1989.

During the sentencing hearing, Froehlich said DeGroot is a monster that haunts children's dreams.
