    A former Prince George's County school aide who manipulated and coerced children to commit sex acts with him and other children has been sentenced to 100 years in prison. News4's Tracee Wilkins reports. (Published Thursday, Sept. 28, 2017)

    A former Prince George’s County school aide was sentenced to 100 years in prison Thursday for taking and sharing cellphone video of children performing sex acts.

    Deonte Carraway pleaded guilty to 23 of the 270 criminal charges of sex abuse of a minor, sex offenses and child pornography he was facing in Prince George's County.

    His 100-year sentence will run concurrently with his federal sentence of 75 years.

    "It is impossible to measure the pain that this case has caused," Prince George's County State's Attorney Angela Alsobrooks said. "Hearing the story of the mother who has to wake up every night because her son has nightmares."

    Alsobrooks said Carraway made a statement expressing his remorse during the sentencing, but he seemed detached from the proceedings.

    Prosecutors say the abuse began in the fall of 2015 and continued for more than a year inside Judge Sylvania Woods Elementary, where Carraway volunteered. He also reportedly recorded sex abuse videos in the homes of his victims and at the Glenarden Community Center.

    Carraway was arrested in February 2016 after the uncle of a 9-year-old boy saw a nude image on the child's phone, police said. Investigators then linked the aide to other victims in the case.

    Last month, Carraway was sentenced to 75 years in prison for 15 federal charges of sexual exploitation of a minor to produce child pornography.

    He admitted in his plea agreement that he engaged in sex acts with children and used a cellphone to record the acts. He also told the children to perform sex acts with each other and gave them phones to record the acts.
