Authorities announced that on Friday, Mason Mallon, 25, of Gibbsboro, was sentenced to a concurrent term of 15 years in New Jersey State Prison by the Honorable Judge Gwendolyn Blue of the New Jersey Superior Court. Mallon is required to serve at least 12 years and 9 months of his sentence before he is eligible for parole.
In addition to his prison sentence, he is also subject to the full penalties of Megan’s Law and Parole Supervision for Life.
Officials say Mason Mallon pled guilty to two counts of first-degree Aggravated Sexual Assault on June 27, 2018. The Gibbsboro Police on August 19, 2017, were called to conduct a wellness check on an 18-year-old female who’d been seen unconscious by a friend after Mason Mallon posted her picture on his Snapchat account.
Upon arrival, police found the victim disoriented, bruised and covered in blood in his bedroom. During the investigation, another victim came forward and told authorities that Mason Mallon had sexually assaulted her when she was 17-years-old in March 2016.
Officials say one of the victims, who is now 20, read an impact statement during the sentencing. The woman told the defendant that, unlike Mallon, who she called weak, she was strong and that even though she “crossed paths with a monster”, she would not become one. She further stated that she would “find the light” in what happened to her.
