Camden County Prosecutor Warren W. Faulk reported a man who pleaded guilty to child molestation was sentenced to a ten year term in prison today.

Ramon Cortes, M/57, of Franklinville, was sentenced to a ten year term of incarceration by Superior Court Judge Michele Fox Friday morning.

Cortes had pleaded guilty in November to a count of Aggravated Sexual Assault. Investigators found that on numerous occasions he inappropriately touched and engaged in sexual conduct with a female under the age of 16. The abuse came to light in May 2012 and began four years prior to that. The abuse took place in Lindenwold.

Prosecutor Faulk credited Assistant Prosecutor Becky Lapidow and Camden County Prosecutor’s Office Detective Terry King with obtaining a plea and a significant sentence in this case.
