Hatton gets eight years in prison

Jill Ballinger/GAZETTE EDITOR

 Kyle Hatton will spend the next eight years in state prison for child molestation. Judge H.N Papadakis issued the sentence in a hearing in Mariposa County Superior Court this afternoon.

The hearing was unusually lengthy and featured comments from Hatton's family and the victim's mother. The emotion on all sides was palpable, and the court room was full.

Papadakis did not mince words when it came time to deliver the sentence. "The court has seen no remorse from you," he said to Hatton. "None whatsoever. You've led a very charmed life. You've had everything."

For the full story on the hearing, see the April 5 edition of the Mariposa Gazette.
