BELVIDERE, N.J. - A New Jersey man could spend decades behind bars for sexually assaulting a child in Warren County.
A judge found Anthony Firetto guilty Thursday of four counts of first-degree aggravated sexual assault (victim under 13 years old), two counts of second-degree sexual assault (victim older than 13 years old but less than 16 years old), and one count of third-degree endangering the welfare of a child.
As a result of the conviction, the judge revoked Firetto's bail and committed him to jail pending his sentencing on August 11.
Firetto is facing up to 20 years in prison for each first-degree count, 10 years for each second-degree count, and five years for the third-degree count, official said.
Firetto was arrested in 2014 and charged with the crimes, which occurred in Pohatcong Township, when the child was between the ages of 10 and 13.
