NEW CITY – A Rockland County grand jury has indicted a Ramapo man on charges of predatory sexual assault against a child, rape, sexual abuse and endangering the welfare of a child.
District Attorney Thomas Walsh II said Ottoniel Gomez-Martinez is alleged to have sexually abused and raped a seven-year-old girl in his home.
The DA said it is alleged that he used his relationship with the child to violate and sexually abuse her.
“The defendant will now be held responsible for his heinous actions and will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,” said Walsh. “We must undertake all efforts to protect our children. They are the future.”
If convicted on the top count of the indictment, Gomez-Martinez faces up to 25 years to life in prison.
The investigation was conducted by the Ramapo Police Department with the assistance of the DA’s Office Special Victims Unit.
