Man sentenced to 54 years to life in prison for years of sex abuse

GREELEY, Colo. (Weld County D.A.) – A Weld County man will spend at least the next five decades behind bars after a jury convicted him of sexually assaulting several juvenile females.

In September of last year, a jury convicted 55-year-old Anthony Abreo of one count of Sexual Assault on a Child and six counts of Sexual Assault on a Child – Pattern of Abuse.

“This is the first time in my entire life I’ve ever been able to talk about it,” one victim told the judge during the sentencing hearing last month. “I owe it to myself, to that little girl, to say something today.”

In total, the Weld County DA’s Office filed charges related to four named victims in this case. However, the jury found him guilty of assaulting three of the victims.

“This man preyed on some of the most vulnerable young girls starting back in 1998,” Deputy District Attorney Yvette Guthrie said. “For years, this monster thought he got away with tormenting these girls, but that ends today. He’ll no longer have the opportunity to victimize anyone else in our community.”

A Weld County judge last month sentenced Abreo to 54 years to life in the Colorado Department of Corrections.

Deputy District Attorneys Yvette Guthrie and Jessica Akers prosecuted this case.
