    The officer was arrested and charged with aggravated indecent assault without consent, unlawful contact with a minor, patronizing of prostitutes, corruption of minors and other related offenses.

    A former Philadelphia police officer who sexually assaulted a 14-year-old girl at a suburban motel has been sentenced to six to 20 years in state prison.
     
    The Bucks County Courier Times said 37-year-old Anthony Dattilo wept during his sentencing Friday and apologized for embarrassing his family.

    Dattilo will also be a registered sex offender for the rest of his life.
     
    The 12-year police force veteran was arrested in May 2012 after the victim sent text messages to family members saying she was being held against her will at a hotel in Bensalem.
     
    Dattilo pleaded guilty in June to aggravated indecent assault, unlawful contact with a minor and related charges.
