New Jersey babysitter heads to prison for sexually assaulting three children
An Egg Harbor Township (Atlantic County) babysitter has received the terms of his prison sentence for sexually assaulting three little children.
The sentence of 30-year old George Getty III of Egg Harbor Township for the sexual assault of three children, announced by the Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office, is for 10-years and he'll have to serve 85-percent of that sentence before becoming eligible for the possibility of being considered for parole.
Getty had been accused of sexually assaulting three children who were 8 years old, 10 years old, and 13 years old respectively while he was tasked with babysitting them, according to the investigation by Egg Harbor Township Police and the Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office.
"According to a report from the Adult Diagnostic and Treatment Center at Avenel, the defendant’s sexual behavior was determined to be both compulsive and repetitive.
Given that finding, and pursuant to statute, the defendant is to serve his sentence at the Adult Diagnostic and Treatment Center (ADTC) and receive sex offender treatment while there."
Getty pleaded guilty to the crime on August 1 and has now been sentenced to a decade in prison and will have to register as a Sex Offender under Megan's Law, remain on parole supervision for life and never have any kind of contact with the victims or their families ever again.
Atlantic County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Erika Halayko represented the State in this matter.
Previously, the ACPO released a statement about a Lakewood man who was sentenced for sexually assaulting a minor at various times while the victim was between 5 years old and 12 years old.
