  FREEHOLD – A Monmouth County man has been sentenced to 40 years after being convicted of sexually assaulting a girl over a ten-year period, announced Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher J. Gramiccioni.

  Victor H. Chino-Martinez, 47, of the Oakhurst section of Ocean Township, was sentenced to two consecutive 20-year terms in New Jersey state prison on June 21. According to authorities, Chino-Martinez waived his right to a trial by jury and was tried before Monmouth County Superior Court Judge Paul X. Escandon.

  Chino-Martinez was found guilty of sexually assaulting a female relative over a 10-year period, beginning when she was a minor. The victim eventually disclosed the details of the abuse to a family member and the Ocean Township Police Department.

  Following a March trial, Chino-Martinez was found guilty of two counts of first degree Aggravated Sexual Assault, three counts of second degree Sexual Assault, two counts of second degree Endangering the Welfare of a Child, one count of third degree Aggravated Criminal Sexual Contact, and two counts of fourth degree Criminal Sexual Contact, and one count of a disorderly persons offense of simple assault.

  Chino-Martinez will be required to serve 85 percent of that term pursuant to the No Early Release Act before he is eligible for parole. He will be required to register as a sex offender and be on Parole Supervision for Life.
