Gosnell Accomplice Steven Massof Sentenced in Abortion "House of Horrors" Case

Final three Gosnell co-defendants set for sentencing March 13

February 13, 2014

Philadelphia, PA - Kermit Gosnell's right-hand man, Steven Massof, who pled guilty to two counts of third degree murder for killing babies born alive during shoddy late-term abortions, was sentenced yesterday to 6-12 years in prison.

Prosecutor Ed Cameron had asked for a prison term of 10-20 years even though Massof cooperated with the prosecution and testified against Gosnell, who is now serving three life sentences for murder and a host of other crimes.

Massof, who earned a medical degree in the Caribbean nation of Granada, was never licensed to practice in the U.S. He drifted between jobs, often working as a barkeep before landing a job at Gosnell's Women's Medical Society in West Philadelphia.

"As evil as Dr. Gosnell was, as charismatic as he may have been, he didn't do this alone. He couldn't do this without the assistance of someone like you," said sentencing Judge Benjamin Lerner.
