Camden County Prosecutor Warren W. Faulk reported a Camden man charged with a string of rapes, including two against teenage victims, has pleaded guilty.
Kevin Cleveland, M/29, of Camden, pleaded to three counts of 1st degree Kidnapping, three counts of 1st degree Aggravated Sexual Assault, 2nd degree Robbery and 2nd degree Possession of a Weapon for an Unlawful Purpose Tuesday. He is expected to be sentenced to a term of 28 years incarceration, 85 percent of which he must serve before becoming eligible for parole. He will also have his name added to the state’s Megan’s Law list of sex offenders, will have parole supervision for life and may be subject to civil commitment after his prison term ends if he is found to be a sexually violent predator.
Cleveland admitted in court to the following incidents:
January 17, 2012 – sexually assaulted a 13-year-old girl while armed with a handgun in Farnham Park in Camden.
January 22, 2012 – sexually assaulted a 20-year-old woman while armed with a gun in Farnham Park in Camden.
February 11, 2012 – sexually assaulted a 16-year-old girl in Farnham Park. He threatened to stab her, left her naked in the park for a period of time, then returned and sexually assaulted her again.
He also admitted in court Tuesday to a January 2, 2012 robbery of a woman in Farnham Park. This woman was not sexually assaulted.
Sentencing is scheduled before Superior Court Judge Michele Fox for July 11, 2014.
