SENTENCING IN SEXUAL ASSAULT
Defendant Matthew Ackerman, 25, of Little Egg Harbor was sentenced today before Judge Rochelle Gizinski, J.S.C., on the charge of 2nd degree Sexual Assault to 5 years in New Jersey State Prison, No Early Release Act, Parole Supervision for Life, Megan’s Registration and Nicole’s Law (No contact with victim).

The case was investigated by Ocean Township Police Department Det. Risden and Ocean County Prosecutor’s Special Victims Unit Det. Lindsay Woodfield. Debra Giordano of OCPO’s Victim Services Unit assisted the family throughout. Senior Assistant Prosecutor Terry Ann Linardakis prosecuted the case.
