PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Calling him a danger to the community, Superior Court Judge Netti C. Vogel, rejecting his tearful apologies to the victim, sentenced suspended Providence police officer Marcus Huffman to 60 years, 40 of them to serve.

“His greatest regret was getting caught,” Vogel said. She said the sentence she imposed was to deter others from abusing positions of authority.

“His attack leaves the people he swore to protect feeling vulnerable and afraid,” Vogel said.

Huffman was found guilty April 15 of one count of first-degree sexual assault in the May 17, 2007, rape of a 19-year-old woman in a police substation in South Providence while the woman was intoxicated.

Huffman, who had delivered a five-minute tearful apology to the victim and her family at about 11:30 a.m., didn’t respond after his sentence was imposed. He was led away by the sheriff.
