Newark – Acting Essex County Prosecutor Carolyn A. Murray announced today that William Siudmak, 56, of Roseland was sentenced to 17 years in New Jersey State Prison by the Honorable Alfonse J. Cifelli, Judge of the Superior Court, for aggravated sexual assault and other crimes against a young girl.

Additionally, he pled guilty to a single count of possession of sexually exploitive images of children.
“Thanks to the courage of the victim in this case, who came forward and exposed these horrific crime, the State was able to ensure that this defendant will no longer be able to prey on any other children in the future,’’ said Assistant Prosecutor Sandler. “Additionally, her reporting brought to light the defendant’s personal library of sexually exploitive images of children who were victimized in the past and now will not be shared with others in the future.”
