Callaway man to be sentenced for sexually abusing a child


Leonardtown, MD- A Callaway man is scheduled to be sentenced Monday, Jan. 29 for sex abuse of a minor.

In October 2017, Jay Thomas Martin, 61, avoided a trial by pleading guilty to the charge against him.

Police say Martin sexually assaulted a 10-year-old family member. The assault took place over a period of four years—from 2013-2017. The victim told investigators Martin would take her out for ice cream and park in an unlit parking lot and sexually assault her.

When confronted by family members, Martin admitted to the abuse and also confessed to investigators. Martin claimed he was sick and was seeking treatment through his church and other resources.
