‘I got to eat,’ says one of the girls raped by guardian, a Trenton cop
MOUNT HOLLY — A Trenton police detective was sentenced this week to 30 years in prison for raping two girls who were in his care.
William Sanchez-Monllor, 39, pleaded guilty last November in what Superior Court Judge Terrence Cook described as one of the worst cases I have seen in my 12 years on the bench.”
Sanchez-Monllor, a Burlington Township resident, was first arrested in September 2018 and charged with raping a 14-year-old girl for whom he was legal guardian.
A week later, he was hit with charges involving a second child victim.
At his sentencing hearing, one the victims described Sanchez-Monllor's depravity.
“I got to eat, and he got satisfaction,” she said.
Burlington County Prosecutor Scott Coffina called the victim "brave" for delivering her "extremely powerful" remarks in court.
Sanchez-Monllor was suspended from his job at the time of the arrest.
He will have to serve the entirety of the 30-year sentence for first-degree aggravated sexual assault with no chance for parole.
After his release, he will be listed as a sex offender for life.
