Southeastern Massachusetts man sentenced to prison for sexually abusing child he knew on multiple occasions



A southeastern Massachusetts man has been sentenced to prison on a disturbing charge concerning a child that he knew.

According to Cape & Islands District Attorney Michael O’Keefe, on Friday, 39-year-old Brandon M. Bamford, of Yarmouth, was found guilty in Barnstable Superior court to one felony indictment for Indecent Assault and Battery on a Child under Fourteen.

After trial, the Commonwealth requested Bamford be sentenced to 5-7 years in state prison. Judge Mark C. Gildea sentenced Bamford to 2-3 years in state prison.

The charge stems from sexual abuse that occurred on diverse dates between the fall of 2012 and spring of 2013, when the victim was between 8-9 years old. Bamford was a person known to the victim.

The case was investigated by the Yarmouth Police Department’s Special Victim’s Unit and prosecuted by Assistant District Attorney Jessica M. Croker.
