A Spring Valley man has been sentenced to 12 years in prison for sexual abuse against a child.
Luis Miguel Lopez-Ruiz, 35, was also sentenced to 20 years post-release supervision after pleading guilty, said Acting Rockland County District Attorney Kevin Gilleece,
According to the District Attorney's Office, between October 2014 and December 2018, Lopez-Ruiz had sex with a child starting when the victim was less than 13-years-old. The repeated abuse, which took place in the Town of Ramapo, continued until the victim was 15-years-old.
“This sentence imposed is more than deserved considering the frightening ordeal of sexual violence that went on for years,” said Gilleece. “The defendant is a dangerous predator who destroyed a child’s innocence.”
The case was investigated by the Town of Ramapo Police Department with the assistance of the Special Victims Unit of the Rockland County District Attorney’s Office.
Upon his release, Lopez-Ruiz must register as a sex offender under the provisions of Megan’s Law.
