Townsend held his head in his hands as the girl spoke tearfully. He never looked at her.
"I've heard he has found religion," she said. "His whole family thinks he has changed, but I don't believe it. He deserves to spend the rest of his life in prison.
"I'm tired of worrying who his next victim will be," she said.
Townsend was arrested last June after one of the victims disclosed the abuse to police. He waived a grand jury indictment and pleaded guilty to two charges of first-degree sexual abuse and one charge of third-degree sexual abuse.
He received two 25-100 year sentences and a one-to-five-year sentence. Townsend will have to register for life as a sexual offender.
