Pleasantville Man Indicted for Sexual Assault of a Child


An Atlantic County Grand Jury handed up an indictment Wednesday against a Pleasantville man for the sexual assault of a child, Atlantic County Prosecutor Damon G. Tyner announced.

According to authorities, Pablo Cortez Trujillo, 25, was indicted on charges of second degree sexual assault of a victim, 13 to 15 years of age  and endangering the welfare of a child by engaging in sexual conduct.

Officials say Trujillo was having a sexual relationship with a 15 year-old girl over a period of a few months after meeting through Facebook.
