A Paterson New Jersey man is headed to prison after he was found guilty of sexually assaulting a juvenile girl in Union County, NJ.
The suspect is a 29-year-old resident of Paterson, New Jersey. He was accused of sexually assaulting a minor victim under the age of 13 in Plainfield NJ over a period of two years.
Detectives with the Union County Prosecutor’s Office Special Victims Unit conducted an investigation and eventually arrested the suspect. He then faced numerous criminal charges, including first degree aggravated sexual assault, first degree sexual assault, and second degree endangering the welfare of a child.
A Union County jury later found the suspect guilty on the sex crime charges.
Now the suspect has been sentenced to 28 years behind bars. Since the crime is listed in the No Early Release Act (NERA), the suspect will have to serve at least 85 percent of his sentence before he gains parole eligibility.
Additionally, the suspect is going to be required to register as a sex offender under Megan’s Law.
