An Aberdeen man will spend two decades in prison after being convicted for sexually assaulting a minor for almost two years, announced Monmouth County Prosecutor Chris Gramiccioni.

Jonathan McDermott, 38, was sentenced Friday by Monmouth County Superior Court Judge Richard W. English for numerous sexual attacks upon a minor who McDermott knew and was also under 13-years old when the attacks took place.

His sentence requires McDermott to serve the full 20 year term before being eligible for release.

Upon his release from state prison, McDermott will be required to register under Megan’s Law and will also be subject to Parole Supervision for Life.

A joint investigation by the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office Special Victims Bureau and Aberdeen Police began in February of 2018 when the minor female victim disclosed that McDermott had committed numerous sexual acts upon her between June of 2015 and April of 2017.

McDermott previously plead guilty to these crimes on October 15, 2018 before Judge English.

The case was prosecuted by Monmouth County Assistant Prosecutor Danielle M. Zanzuccki.

McDermott is represented by J. Michael Wicke, Esq. of Freehold.
