German Acosta, 35, convicted last year of molesting his 12-year-old niece, was sentenced to 15 years to life in prison after listening to his older brother tell Judge Brian Hill how the incident has impacted both his life and the life of his daughter, Acosta’s victim. Acosta, found guilty of aggravated sexual assault along with other lewd acts, was convicted almost solely on the testimony of the girl. According to the girl, Acosta asked her if she had a boyfriend before molesting her, and gave her $20 afterward.
