“The victim is the young girl who was assaulted, and that’s who we were fighting for,” says Montgomery County prosecutor Noah Marlier. “We were fighting to bring her some justice and some peace of mind in what is otherwise just an awful situation.”
Marlier says he’s pleased with the sentence, adding Cintron abused his power and his position of trust, and showed no remorse for the girl.
Cintron worked for a physical rehabilitation agency in Philadelphia and was contracted to the high school.MORE NEWS: White House Says Pause On Johnson & Johnson Vaccine 'Will Not Have A Significant Impact On Our Vaccination Plan'
