Courageous teenage victim faces abuser after several years of childhood abuse. State’s Attorney calls on leaders to join in the fight for victims suffering in silence.
UPPER MARLBORO, MD (August 8, 2022) – Justice was served for a teenage victim of child sex abuse when a Prince George’s County jury convicted Quinton Perry, of Hyattsville, in a three-day trial, announced Prince George’s County State’s Attorney Aisha N. Braveboy.
After 30 minutes of deliberation, Perry, age 62, was found guilty of six counts to include sex abuse of a minor, second, third and fourth degree sex offense and related charges. Perry was taken into custody immediately after the guilty verdict. He will be sentenced on January 4, 2023.
In December 2018, the victim reported that she had been sexually abused by Perry. This initiated an investigation by the Prince George’s Police Department. In January 2019, the Child Advocacy Center interviewed the victim where she disclosed the details of the abuse, she endured from the age of 8 to 12 years of age.
The survivor was 14 years old when she reported the abuse and 18 years old at the time of trial.
“I want to commend the victim in this case and the victim’s mother for having the strength and courage to come forward, face the abuser, and see this case through the process of prosecution. While these types of cases can be extremely difficult to prove, justice is possible. However, if you or someone you know is being abused or has been in the past, I strongly encourage you to come forward,” said State’s Attorney Braveboy. “There is no statute of limitations for child sexual assault, which means it is never too late to get justice. I also want to thank the attorney assigned to this case and the Prince George’s Police Department for an outstanding and thorough investigation that led to the indictment and conviction of Mr. Perry.”
