Camden County Prosecutor Mary Eva Colalillo and Winslow Police Chief Robert Stimelski announced a Winslow man was sentenced on Friday to 20 years in state prison for sexually assaulting several juvenile boys.

Joseph E. Cuthbert, 73, will be required to serve at least 17 years of his prison term before he would be eligible for parole under the No Early Release Act.  The sentence was imposed by Superior Court Judge Richard F. Wells.

Cuthbert pleaded guilty in June to three counts of first-degree aggravated sexual assault and one count of third-degree endangering the welfare of a child.

The crimes occurred on various dates between November 2002 and December 2013 in Winslow Township.  The victims were four boys who were at least 13 but less than 16 years old.  Cuthbert came into contact with his victims through his role as a church organist.

Released Tuesday, September 22, 2015.
