Atlantic City Man Pleads Guilty to Sexual Assault of 8-year-old Boy
An Atlantic City man has pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting an 8-year-old boy in 2018.
Acting Atlantic County Prosecutor Cary Shill says 24-year-old Deandre Johnson pleaded guilty to a charge of first-degree aggravated sexual assault on Tuesday. During the plea hearing, "Johnson admitted to performing a sexual act on the boy in December 2018," according to a press release.
Shill's office says Johnson must serve an entire 15-year sentence in state prison without the possibility of parole. He must also register as a sex offender under Megan’s Law and he will be under parole supervision for the rest of his life.
Johnson has been held in custody at the Atlantic County Justice Facility since January 2019.
