NJ Man Gets Life Term For Rape as Repeat Offender

A Hackensack man convicted of raping a 13-year-old girl while on parole for another child-sex conviction has been sentenced to life-plus-24 years in prison.

Ivan McKinney (Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office)

It’s an unusually long sentence for someone not charged with a homicide.

But a judge in Hackensack said Thursday 40-year-old Ivan McKinney needs to be removed from society because the rape of the 13-year-old marked the third time he had preyed on young girls.

An assistant Bergen County prosecutor, Catherine Fantuzzi, described McKinney as “a depraved, opportunistic, recidivist rapist.”

She told the court the only way to protect society was to put him in prison for the rest of his life. He is not eligible for parole for 54 years.

McKinney’s attorney told The Record newspaper he will appeal the conviction and the sentence.
