Morrisville Man Sent to State Prison for Sex Assault on Child

October 11, 2016



FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: Kate Kohler, 215.348.6327, kkohler@buckscounty.org

A 24-year-old Morrisville man was sentenced Friday to serve four to 10 years in state prison for sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl.

Anthony Fortino, of the 200 block of Cox Avenue, had pleaded guilty on June 27 to charges of sexual assault and aggravated indecent assault of a child.

Fortino was arrested in March, soon after a school resource officer at the child’s school contacted Morrisville police. The resource officer reported that the victim had confided to a friend that she and Fortino had engaged in sexual intercourse.

In interviews with police, the victim and Fortino both said that they had engaged in several sexual acts since January inside Fortino’s house.

The victim was reluctant to speak to investigators because she said she did not want Fortino to get into trouble, court records said. She said that Fortino had told her that he would kill himself if he went to jail.

Bucks County Judge Raymond F. McHugh, who imposed the sentence, had deferred sentencing after Fortino’s guilty plea to allow for an evaluation by the Sexual Offenders Assessment Board. A board member concluded that Fortino did not meet the criteria to be declared a sexually violent predator.

McHugh ordered that Fortino have no further contact with the victim.

The case was prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Kate Kohler.

Approved for release by Gregg Shore, Deputy District Attorney.
