A Minor Sentence for Abuse of a Minor
A Westminster man pleaded guilty to a charge of sexual abuse of a minor Monday morning.
Gerson Adonias Rosales, 24, of unit block of Ward Avenue, was given 10 years, suspended all but time served, by presiding Judge Thomas Stansfield.
As part of the plea deal, the state entered a count of second-degree assault and a count of third-degree sex offense as nolle prosequi, or abandoned by the state.
Rosales originally planned to go through with a jury trial Monday morning but agreed to a plea deal. He declined to speak during the court hearing.
1 in 5 New York Kids Are Sexually Abused. Help Prevent That
The CDC reports that 1 in 5 children are sexually abused.
9 out of 10 of the perpetrators are never brought to justice and never appear on sex offender registries.
They are protected by New York State laws.
