Puerto Plata court sentences man to 15 years in prison for sexual abuse against a minor

Puerto Plata – The Collegiate Court of this Judicial Department chaired by Judge Rosa Francia Liriano, sentenced a man to 15 years in prison for sexual and physical abuse against a minor whose name is omitted for legal reasons.

The convict’s name is German Rivas Martínez Polanco (Chiquitín), who is found guilty of violating articles 330 and 331 of the Dominican Penal Code, which criminalize all sexual assault and Law 136-03 of the Code for Protection and Fundamental Rights Of Children and Adolescents.

Rivas Martinez was also ordered to pay a fine of 100 pesos, in addition to compensation of one million pesos for the fact that he committed on October 27, 2016 in the sector Cienaga of the district of Cabarete and must serve his sentence at the San Felipe Correction and Rehabilitation Center.

After the court issued a sentence, the Puerto Plata Chief Prosecutor, Osvaldo Bonilla Hiraldo, expressed his satisfaction with the sentence, highlighting how positive that the justice system is giving strong responses to child abuse, in order to ensure that in the future we can have healthy, productive and happy families.

“I am pleased with the investigation carried out by the team that integrates the Unit for Integral Care for Victims of Gender, Intrafamily and Sexual Crimes Violence coordinated by Judge Luisa Marmolejos, as well as prosecutor Kelmi Dúncan, that was crucial to demonstrate the culpability of the accused, “he said.
