MORRIS COUNTY — A former Mount Arlington man convicted of sexual contact with a 16-year-old girl in Mount Olive three years ago, was sentenced recently to three years in prison, according to authorities.

The man, Vinicio Orellana, 45, who lived on Orben Drive near the Roxbury border, was found guilty at trial of three counts of fourth-degree criminal sexual contact and one count of third-degree endangering the welfare of a child, said the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office. The three-day trial took place in February.

Orellana was sentenced on August 11 by state Superior Court Judge Ralph Amirata. The sentence is subject to the provisions of Megan’s Law and parole supervision for life, said the prosecutor’s office, which – due to the defendant’s mailing address – inaccurately described Orellana as a resident of the Landing section of Roxbury.

“Evidence at trial established that on September 27, 2020, Defendant touched a 16-year-old female victim on her intimate parts while in Mount Olive Township,” said the prosecutor’s office. “The incident was reported to the Mount Olive Police Department on September 27.”

In the statement, Morris County Prosecutor Robert Carroll thanked the agencies that participated in the investigation including the Mount Olive Police Department, the Morris County Sheriff’s Office Crime Scene Investigation Unit, and the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office Sex Crimes Child Endangerment Unit.

“The prosecutor also credited the Trial Team: Assistant Prosecutor Jacqueline Marotta, Assistant Prosecutor Alexandra Pecora, MCPO Detective Jenna Powers, and MCPO Detective Lamar Hagans, with their professional and dedicated service,” said the statement. “The Prosecutor further commended Detective Constantinos Pagonis and Det. Lt. Luis Sanchez of the Mount Olive Police Department, who was the lead investigator on this case, and Detective Juan Munoz and Detective Shawn Casey of the Morris County Sheriff’s Office Crime Scene Investigation Unit, and MCPO Victim Witness Supervisor. Amanda Holloway, along with all others who contributed to the investigation and successful prosecution in this case.”
