A martial arts fighter from Fairfield County will spend the better part of a decade behind bars for molesting his girlfriend’s teenage daughter.
Greenwich resident Danny Morales, 42, was sentenced to eight years in prison after a jury found him guilty of multiple counts of sexual assault and risk of injury to a minor after he sexually abused a 13-year-old girl.
It was alleged that Morales touched his victim repeatedly on her private parts and made her touch him while he was in an aroused state. Morales was never accused of having sex with the girl. The girl, who is now 16 years old, reportedly told her mother about the sexual assault, but her mother took Morales’ side.
When he is released from prison, Morales will have to register with the Connecticut State Sex Offender Registry, and has been ordered to stay away from his victim and her mother for 30 years, until Morales will be 72 years old. Morales also received 20 years probation.
