Prison Sentence for Rape of a Child in Carbon County

Kevin Gowrie

JIM THORPE — A man who admitted to the rape of a 12-year-old boy was sentenced Tuesday to a long prison term.

A judge sentenced Kevin Gowrie to 16 to 35 years in prison.

Gowrie pleaded guilty to rape of a child and aggravated assault charges.

Authorities said Gowrie assaulted a boy over a 6-month period in 2016.

Police in Jim Thorpe said this was one of the worst cases of sexual assault of a child they had investigated.

    That’s still not enough of a sentence considering this boy is no doubt scarred for life. This sick bastard could be out in as little as 8 years. I sincerely hope prison justice takes over where our court system failed.
