Allentown sexual predator sentenced to decades in prison

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - An Allentown man has been sentenced to decades in prison for sexually assaulting children.

Adrian Jimenez, 42, was sentenced Thursday to 20 to 40 years in prison for sexually assaulting a 5-year-old and making a 7-year-old film it.

Jimenez must also register as a sexually violent predator under Megan’s Law.

It all began July 26, 2015, when police responded to a call of a man lying unconscious in the street, possibly suffering from a drug overdose.

The man turned out to be Jimenez who was transported to Lehigh Valley Hospital for treatment.

Police then went to the 300 block of Hickory Lane, Jimenez’s home address, seeking a young girl who was with Jimenez before he was taken to the hospital.

There police found three children, ages two, five and seven, alone in the apartment.

That’s where police obtained a cell phone with the pictures and videos of naked children.
