Auburn man who sexually abused girl for years will spend nearly a decade in prison

An Auburn man who sexually abused a girl for five years will spend nine years in prison.

Michael C. Thorn, 36, was sentenced on charges of first-degree course of sexual conduct against a child, a class B felony, and endangering the welfare of a child, a misdemeanor.

The abuse began when the victim was 7.


Thorn will have 10 years of post-release supervision.

The victim was in court with family. She recounted her experience, having a statement for the court. Panic attacks, inability to trust adults, and becoming more irritable are all the realities the victim faces now due to Thorn’s years-long abuse.

The judge presiding over the case praised the girl’s bravery.

“I’ve seen a lot of hardened criminals, but these kinds of cases really turn my stomach,” Judge Leone said in court.

Thorn has been at the Cayuga County Jail for nearly a year.
