Child molester sentenced

A Mount Prospect man who admitted to repeatedly molesting a female relative has earned 14 years behind bars. Ronald Sampson, 25, formerly of 413 E. Lincoln St., has been sentenced to two consecutive seven-year terms after pleading guilty in October to two counts of predatory criminal sexual assault. The felonies could have put him behind bars for as many as 60 years. Cook County Judge John Scotillo handed down the sentence. Sampson was accused of molesting a female relative over an 11-year period, from 1995 to 2006. The victim was 6 years old when the abuse began, and Sampson was 14, prosecutors have said. He was arrested in July 2006 after he impregnated the girl. Sampson originally faced more than 75 counts of various sex charges in connection with the crime. The rest of those counts were dropped in exchange for his guilty plea.
