NJ man sentenced to federal prison in Internet sex case


NEW YORK – A Newark, New Jersey man was sentenced in federal court on Tuesday to 21 years in prison followed by five years of post-release supervision for his attempted enticement of a minor for sexual activity.

The case against Terrick Washington, 45, was initiated by the Orange County District Attorney’s Office when he thought he was communicating online with a 13-year-old girl, who he tried to entice to have sexual activity with him. He was, in fact, communicating with Orange County DA criminal investigators.

When he came to Orange County to meet the girl on November 11, 2015, he was arrested at the Harriman train station on felony charges including attempted rape. He admitted following his arrest that he had met a young girl online via his smartphone and that he arrangeed to meet her for sex.

When he was 18, Washington was convicted of a sex offense involving a five-year-old girl. He served 15 years in prison from that New Jersey conviction and was required to register in New Jersey as a sexual offender.

The FBI and Orange County Sheriff’s Office worked with the DA’s Office in cracking the case.
