Man Finally Sentenced in Child Endangerment Case

A man whose sentencing on child endangerment has been delayed for various reasons, including an arrest for assault of an employee at the state hospital is finally sentenced to jail today.

George Matthew Sapp received two years in state jail for two counts. He must serve the entire two years without parole. Sapp was supposed to be sentenced on March 24th, until a new arrest at the North Texas State Hospital in which police said he took his girlfriend out of the hospital by force.

The endangerment charge was for allowing a woman he and his girlfriend knew was molesting their daughter to continue living with them and homeschooling the girl.

In his sentencing hearing earlier,  three state hospital employees testified that Sapp came into the hospital at a high rate of speed without stopping, knocked down and punched an employee escorting a patient from the chapel, then took the patient out at a high rate of speed.

Sapp said he's not guilty, that he just likes to help people. Sapp's co-defendant in the endangerment case, Paula Carter has a pending ruling on whether her probation for child endangerment will be revoked because of a perjury charge.
