An Atlantic City man was sentenced to seven years in a treatment facility for sex offenders for aggravated sexual assault of an 11-year-old girl, Atlantic County Prosecutor Ted Housel stated.
Camilo Moro-Rojas, 33, a Mexican National, must serve five years, 11 months and six days, or 85-percent of the prison term, prior to being eligible for parole. Upon release from prison, he is subject to five years of parole supervision and the defendant is subject to the requirements of Megan’s Law that he register as a sex offender for life. In addition, immigration has filed a detainer and the defendant will be deported upon completion of his sentence, according to Assistant Prosecutor Bill Merz who represented the prosecution.
On diverse dates between July 1, 2008 and Aug. 17, 2009, Moro-Rojas committed numerous sexual assaults on the child of his former girlfriend. The assaults took place when the defendant would visit the victim at her North Windsor Avenue home in Atlantic City. When the child told her mother on Aug. 18, 2009, the mother immediately contacted police. The defendant was arrested 30 minutes later at 18 North Hartford Avenue in Atlantic City. During the arrest Moro-Rojas violently resisted, produced a knife and stabbed Officer James Miltenberger in the arm. The injury required surgery and caused nerve damage to the officer’s arm. He was out of work on medical leave for four months. For the aggravated assault on the officer, the defendant received a five-year prison term, which will run concurrent with the sentence imposed for the aggravated sexual assault. The defendant was indicted in June of 2010, said Assistant Prosecutor Merz who presented the case to the Grand Jury.
“We hope the child will not be permanently damaged by this and have a normal life,” Assistant Prosecutor Merz said.
Superior Court Judge Bernard E. DeLury sentenced the defendant to the Adult Diagnostic and Treatment Center in Avenel for repetitive and compulsive sex offenders.
