Throughout Friday's hearing, Jopek's mother held a picture on her lap of her daughter when she was 13. They only time I'll see her again is in heaven," Caroyln Tousignant said.Grooms received a 10-year suspended sentence and five years of supervised release but was given no jail time.
In addition to the sentence, he is required to register as a sex offender for the remainder of his life.
