According to Atlantic County officials, George Getty, III, 30, of Egg Harbor Township, was sentenced on Thursday, December 8, for the sexual assault of three minor children that he babysat.

Officials say, Getty pled guilty on August 1, to three counts of sexual assault involving a minor for each of the victims, who were 8, 10, and 13 years of age.
