MAYS LANDING, N.J. (AP) — An Atlantic City man who lured and sexually assaulted a 7-year-old girl is now headed to state prison.
Atlantic County prosecutors say 61-year-old Victoriano Sevilla received a 20-year sentence Friday. He also will have to register as a sex offender and will be on lifetime parole supervision once he’s freed from prison.
Sevilla had pleaded guilty last December to aggravated sexual assault. The charge stemmed from an incident that occurred in May 2014.
Prosecutors say a 911 caller reported Sevilla was attacking the child at a city residence.
He fled the scene before police arrived. But officers soon found him on a nearby street.
Sevilla will have to serve 18 years of his sentence before he becomes eligible for parole.
