    Ex-Boston Man Convicted of Molesting 2 Boys in 1990s Sentenced to 14 Years in Prison

    One of two men sexually abused as a boy decades ago by a man who disappeared after his indictment in 1993 told his abuser at sentencing "you robbed me of my innocence and ripped my sense of security from me."

    John Hartin was sentenced Tuesday in Boston to up to 14 years in prison for molesting the 6- and 9-year-old boys in the early 1990s. The 48-year-old Hartin was convicted last week of child rape.

    The other victim said in court that "I can never forgive this man."

    Hartin was indicted in 1993 but fled before trial.
