MORRIS COUNTY — Morris County Prosecutor Robert J. Carroll, Morris County Chief of Detectives Robert McNally, and Jefferson Township Police Chief Paul Castimore confirmed the sentencing of Michael Figueroa, 32, of Jefferson Township, on Aggravated Sexual Assault and related charges.

On January 17, 2024, Figueroa entered a guilty plea to one count of first degree Aggravated Sexual Assault, one count of second degree Certain Persons Not to Have Weapons, and one count of third degree Possession with Intent to Distribute CDS. On May 31, the Honorable Ralph Amirata, J.S.C. imposed an aggregate sentence of 23 years in New Jersey State Prison, 23 years of parole ineligibility, Megan’s Law registration, and parole supervision for life. The last seven years of the sentence will be served at the Adult Diagnostic and Treatment Center.

Last year, a narcotics investigation led investigators to obtain a search warrant for Figueroa’s residence. The search resulted in the seizure of multiple handguns, pump action rifles, approximately eleven (11) bricks of suspected heroin weighing less than one-half ounce, a bag of suspected cocaine weighing less than one-half ounce, ammunition, and one digital scale.

As a result, Figueroa was charged on April 19, 2023.

Following his arrest, investigators discovered material that depicted sexual abuse of a child under 13 years of age on Figueroa’s smartphone. It is alleged that the sexual assaults of this child occurred over two years at the defendant’s residence in Jefferson Township. Investigators also located additional images of Child Sexual Abuse Material on Figueroa’s phone. Additional charges were filed on May 1, 2023, concerning the materials found on Figueroa’s phone.

Figueroa was arrested in April 2023 and has been detained in the Morris County Correctional Facility pursuant to the Criminal Justice Reform Act.
