FLEMINGTON, NJ – A borough man who admitted in court that he had sexual contact with a child has been sentenced to state prison, Acting Hunterdon County Prosecutor Michael J. Williams announced in a press release.
Carlos Hernandez-Escobar, 31, was arrested two years ago after an investigation by detectives from the Hunterdon County Prosecutor’s Office’s Special Victims Unit and police from both Flemington and Raritan Township, where the incidents with a victim younger than 13 occurred, Williams said.
Hernandez-Escobar was later indicted by a Hunterdon County Grand Jury on two counts of second-degree sexual assault and two counts of third-degree endangering the welfare of a child. He pleaded guilty to third-degree endangering the welfare of a child in June.
On Friday, Judge Angela F. Borkowski sentenced Hernandez-Escobar to three years in state prison. He’s also prohibited from having contact with the victim.
