Carlos Zacarias, 51, of Flemington received a 10-year state prison sentence last Friday in exchange for a guilty plea last September to sexually assaulting a minor, Hunterdon County Acting Prosecutor Michael J. Williams said.

Superior Court Judge Angela Borkowski tacked on 18 months for contempt of court, Williams said.

Zacarias was arrested in June 2018 following a joint investigation by the Hunterdon County Prosecutor’s Office’s Special Victims Unit and the Flemington Borough Police Department, the prosecutor said.

He later struck a deal with prosecutors and pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a child under the age of 13 between September 2017 and February 2018.
