Prosecutors say between 2017 and 2019, Airwyke sexually assaulted the child.  Senior Assistant District Attorney Christopher Ganz said the “victim’s childhood was stolen” by Airwyke.

In addition to 15 years in prison, Airwyke will be sentenced to 20 years post-release supervision and be required to file as a sex offender.
