BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — A former truck driver from New York state has been sentenced to life behind bars in a child sex abuse case less than two years after his brother was sentenced to more than 100 years for molesting children.
The sentence was handed down on Wednesday against David Allen Vickers of Stanley, New York. He was convicted last year of taking two children to Canada, New Jersey and Pennsylvania and repeatedly abusing and molesting them while making deliveries.
Federal prosecutors say the crimes took place between 1999 and 2007. They say Vickers abused other children with the first starting in 1983.
The case against Vickers started after an investigation into his brother, Sean Vickers, who was sentenced to 107 years in 2014 for sexually abusing five children.
