A Lexington Park man was sentenced to five years in prison Friday, Feb. 8, after he pleaded guilty to sexually abusing a 13-year-old girl last August.
Chad C. Langgle, 19, pleaded guilty in Calvert County Circuit Court to sex abuse of a minor. He was sentenced to nine years in prison, with all but five years suspended, and was placed on five years of supervised probation upon his release. He was given credit for 179 days he has already served in jail.
Langgle also pleaded guilty in a separate case to second-degree assault on a minor child and was sentenced to three years in prison, with all but one year suspended, and placed on five years of supervised probation. A charge of fourth-degree sex offense was dropped by the state as part of a plea agreement.
At 2:30 p.m. on Aug. 6, 2012, Maryland State Police Prince Frederick barrack troopers were contacted by St. Mary’s County detectives who were interviewing a 13-year-old girl at MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital in Leonardtown for a sexual offense that occurred in Calvert County, according to charging documents. The girl told detectives she had been raped at her home Aug. 4 by Langgle, troopers said.
While at the hospital, the girl called Langgle, who allegedly told her he had used a condom when they had sex. Langgle allegedly told the girl during the phone call he would not have sex with her again.
The girl later told troopers she and Langgle were at her home in Lusby on Aug. 3 when he began sending her text messages asking her to have sex with him, troopers said. The girl told troopers Langgle allegedly had sent her text messages before asking her to have sex, so it was “not odd” that he was sending her messages about it then.
The girl told troopers she “felt pressured” to have sex with him, so she met Langgle in a bedroom of her home and had sex with him.
