Queens, N.Y., Supreme Court Judge Richard L. Buchter (pictured above) broke down in tears after sentencing a former housing court officer and assistant girls basketball coach Kerbet Dixon (pictured) to at least 25 1/3 years behind bars for sexually abusing two young relatives in 2008 and 2009, according to the New York Daily News.
Dixon was convicted in March on felony charges of hoarding hundreds of child pornography images and sexually assaulting his wife’s nieces, ages 10 and 14, in the home that he shared with his spouse of 25 years and their three children.
The 50-year-old Dixon, who was touted in court by his defense attorney as being a highly respected Father, foster parent, and court officer with more than 20 years of duty under his belt, was then brought down to the lowest depths by Buchter as he sat on the bench passing judgement on the defendant whose vile acts moved him to tears.
“In 27 years on the bench, I have not seen a more repulsive case,” Buchter said, his voice rising according to the New York Daily News. “Justice is a poor replacement. . . . The lengthy prison sentence I propose will not restore the sweet innocence of the child.”
