UPPER MARLBORO – In an Upper Marlboro court room Thursday morning, after pleading guilty to 23 of 270 counts of child abuse and porn-related charges, Judge Beverly J. Woodard sentenced former Prince George's County Public Schools aide Denonte Carraway to 100 years in prison.
In August, a federal judge sentenced Carraway to 75 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to porn-related charges. Both the 75-year and 100-year sentence are to run concurrently.
Carraway, a former school aide at Judge Sylvania Woods Elementary School in Glenarden, was arrested in February 2016 after an uncle of a 9-year-old boy discovered a nude image on the child's phone. That night the uncle went to the police.
The next day, detectives interviewed and arrested Carraway. Throughout the weekend, detectives began unraveling what has now become a wide-ranging investigation. Preliminarily, detectives have identified at least 10 known victims and uncovered approximately 40 videos showing the victims performing sexual acts on each other or alone at the direction of Carraway. Detectives also believe Carraway sexually abused some of the victims. He has since admitted to his involvement in the manufacturing and production of child pornography.
After Carraway was sentence, Prince George’s County State’s Attorney Angela Alsobrooks released a statement.
“Carraway’s case was a miserable failure for children in the Prince George’s County school system and in the community. With the sentence, we made it possible that Denonte Carraway will never harm another child again.”
