Authorities in Atlantic City announced that a 35-year-old man was sentenced Wednesday to 54 years in State Prison for a July 2020 aggravated sexual assault of a Claridge Hotel housekeeper.

According to officials, in September 2022, following a six-day jury trial, Kye Hardison of Camden was convicted by an Atlantic County jury.

The jury convicted Hardison of:

Count 1 – Sexual Assault – 2nd degree

Count 2 – Burglary – 2nd degree

Count 3 – Aggravated Sexual Assault – 1st degree Authorities say on the first-degree Aggravated Sexual Assault charge, an ordinary term of imprisonment is between 10-20 years.

However, due to Hardison’s extensive criminal history, and the particularly egregious nature of this sexual assault, the State sought an extended prison term at the time of sentencing.

Officials say in sentencing the defendant, the judge found that the extended term sentence was warranted. Upon release, Hardison would be subject to Megan’s Law and Parole Supervision for Life.
