EXCLUSIVE: A Bergenfield man will be deported to his native Mexico after admitting that he sexually assaulted a 14-year old girl.
“You do understand you will be deported?” Superior Judge James J. Guida told Martinez through a Spanish interpreter.
“Yes,” he replied.
Negotiations in the case went back and forth through the day until an agreement was struck just past 4 o’clock yesterday afternoon.
Martinez originally was charged with several counts, including rape, statutory rape, touching various parts of the girl’s body and impairing the morals of a minor.
In return for his guilty plea, all of the charges were dropped except for statutory rape.
Martinez will remain in the Bergen County Jail until sentencing, set for Sept. 27.
