On December 8, 2022, George Getty, III, 30, of Egg Harbor Township was sentenced for the sexual assault of three minor children that he babysat. Getty was sentenced to 10 years in New Jersey State Prison with an 85% period of parole ineligibility.
Getty previously pled guilty on August 1, 2022 before the Honorable Bernard DeLury, Jr., PJ.Cr., to three counts of sexual assault involving a minor for each of the victims who were 8, 10, and 13 years of age.
The case was investigated by the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office and the Egg Harbor Township Police Department. The victims and their family were present at sentencing. According to a report from the Adult Diagnostic and Treatment Center at Avenel, the defendant’s sexual behavior was determined to be both compulsive and repetitive.
Given that finding, and pursuant to statute, the defendant is to serve his sentence at the Adult Diagnostic and Treatment Center (ADTC) and receive sex offender treatment while there.
Additional Sentencing Conditions
Other sentencing conditions require Getty to register as a sex offender subject to Megan’s Law, remain on Parole Supervision for Life, and have no contact with the victims or their families. Chief Assistant Prosecutor Erika Halayko represented the State in this matter.
