PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A former Philadelphia police officer who sexually assaulted a 14-year-old girl at a suburban motel has been sentenced to six to 20 years in state prison.

The Bucks County Courier Times said 37-year-old Anthony Dattilo wept during his sentencing Friday and apologized for embarrassing his family.

Dattilo will also be a registered sex offender for the rest of his life.

The 12-year police force veteran was arrested in May 2012 after the victim sent text messages to family members saying she was being held against her will at a hotel in Bensalem.

Dattilo pleaded guilty in June to aggravated indecent assault, unlawful contact with a minor and related charges.
