A man found guilty of a sex crime has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.
Jerry Lucero, 54, 505 Blanchard St., must also register as a sex offender for the rest of his life, according to District Court documents. He was found guilty by a jury on one count of criminal sexual contact of a minor.
According to a state police report, a 7-year-old girl told her mother that Lucero had touched her private parts in September 2007 in a residence in the 400 block of Mountain View Drive. The mother reportedly called police right away.
The report states that Lucero threatened the girl and told her not to say anything about what happened. The girl reportedly told others to put cameras in the residence to prove what happened. She also said that she was scared to go to the same residence again, the report states.
According to the report, the girl said Lucero had been touching her private parts since she was 5.
