Former Perth Amboy Security Guard Sentenced to 7 Years for Assaulting a Minor

Perth Amboy

Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew C. Carey announced today that a former security guard for the McGinnis Middle School in Perth Amboy has been sentenced to serve 7 years in a New Jersey state prison for the sexual assault of a minor.

Officials say Elios Arias-Aguilar, 26, of Perth Amboy was sentenced on April 29, 2019, to serve a flat sentence of 7 years in a New Jersey state prison.

Superior Court Judge Michael A. Toto, sitting in New Brunswick, ordered Aguilar to register as a Megan’s Law sex offender and also ordered that the defendant be placed on parole supervision for life upon his release from prison. In addition, Judge Toto ordered the defendant to have no contact with the victims.

Aguilar pleaded guilty on January 1, 2019, to one count of sexual assault in the second degree. The defendant was terminated from his employment at the McGinnis Middle School, where he was employed as a security guard for approximately two years, as a result of his criminal acts.

The defendant was arrested and charged during an investigation by Detective Riscardo Rosado of the Perth Amboy Police Department and Detective Ryan Tighe of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office.
