A Camden New Jersey man is on his way to state prison after pleading guilty to sexually assaulting a minor.
The suspect is a 59-year-old man from Camden, NJ. He was investigated for the sex crime and eventually placed under arrest by Gloucester County Prosecutor’s Office detectives.
According to law enforcement officials, the suspect sexually assaulted a juvenile victim who was between the ages of 13 and 15. The sexual offense was reportedly committed at a home in East Greenwich Township. That’s why the suspect faced the criminal charges in Gloucester County, New Jersey.
The suspect ultimately avoided trial in the sex crime case by reaching a plea agreement with Gloucester County prosecutors and pleading guilty second degree felony charges.
Now the suspect has been sentenced to five years behind bars, with a superior court judge signing off on the plea deal.
In addition to serving time in NJ State Prison, the suspect will also have to register as a convicted sex offender under Megan’s Law.
