VT Man Sentenced to 5 Years for Child Sexual Assault

In court, the mother said that her daughter, now in her late teens, has been in mental hospitals and hasn’t attended public school since the sixth grade. The victim has never attended a school dance, been on a date or attended a sleepover at a friend’s house, the woman said. “Mr. Gusha took away something my daughter will never get back, her trust,” the mother said. “Because of your actions, we will never know what her normal would have been.”
