UPDATE: Thurmont Man Pleads Guilty to Sexual Abuse of a Minor

A Thurmont man has pleaded guilty to sexually abusing a child with developmental disabilities.
THURMONT, Md. - A Thurmont man has pleaded guilty to sexually abusing a child with developmental disabilities. 

According to the Frederick County State's Attorney's Office, John Salvo, 72, of Thurmont, could see up to ten years behind bars. Investigators say he inappropriately touched a 13-year-old, who functions as a 7 to 9-year-old several times last winter. 

Officials say the victim lived in the same apartment complex as Salvi, and would go to Salvi's apartment with her older sister to play on a regular basis. In February 2013, Salvi texted the victim, asking if she could come alone. At that point, officials say the victim's parents became suspicious and while questioning the young girl, found out Salvi had been touching her. 

Salvi was arrested on February 24, 2013. He's plead guilty to one count of sexual abuse of a minor and will face sentencing on November 13, 2013.
