An Orange County man was sentenced to 15 years in prison followed by 10 years of post-release supervision as part of a plea deal in his child rape case.
According to District Attorney David Hoovler, Eduardo Martinez-Rojas, 30, of Highland Mills, admitted to engaging in two or more acts of sexual conduct with a child who was less than 13 years old.
He will also register as a sex offender.
“The acts perpetrated by this defendant against a child are truly unimaginable,” said Hoovler in prepared remarks. “Cases like this one are challenging for both the law enforcement agencies tasked with the investigation and the members of my staff who prosecute the cases. But no one bears the burden for the defendant’s conduct like the blameless victim. The only appropriate response to such admitted conduct is the significant prison sentence imposed.”
