“This defendant preyed upon the innocence and vulnerability of a young child to satisfy his own heinous desires,” stated Suffolk County District Attorney Raymond A. Tierney. The defendant was brought to justice because, thankfully, she had the guts to come forward and testify before the Grand Jury.

The little girl will not be subjected to further victimization by having to face her attacker in court thanks to this plea deal.

Prosecutors said, based on the evidence uncovered and Romero’s own admissions during his plea allocution, that he gave the kid pocket change to conceal her actions from her parents.

Instead, the girl went straight to her parents with the news of the rape. Those grownups contacted the authorities.

The child was sent to Stony Brook University Hospital. DNA evidence linking Romero to the crime was discovered by a nurse, according to the prosecution.

“On April 12, 2023, Romero pleaded guilty before County Court Judge, the Honorable Judge Karen M. Wilutis, to Rape in the First Degree, a Class B violent felony,” the prosecution claimed.

Romero was ordered detained without bail by Judge Wilutis. When Romero is sentenced, he will be registered as a sex offender and given a total of 12 years in prison plus 10 years of post-release monitoring.
