MOUNT HOLLY, NJ – George F. Young pleaded guilty to criminal sexual contact with his victim, a young girl in Burlington County and today was sentenced to 21 years in prison for his heinous crime.

Burlington County Acting Prosecutor LaChia L. Bradshaw announced Young was sentenced to 21 years in New Jersey state prison for sexually assaulting an underage female and engaging in sexual conduct with two other minors.

“The investigation began after an acquaintance of one of the victims became aware of Young’s abuse and told an adult, who then contacted law enforcement,” Bradshaw said. “The abuse occurred over a two-year period leading up to Young’s arrest in September 2021. Additional details about the case are being withheld to protect the identity of the victims.”

Young was prosecuted by Assistant Prosecutor Stephen Eife, supervisor of the BCPO Special Victims Unit.
