John Rodriguez – Repeat Sex Offender – Compulsive Perverted Pedophile

“The evidence of him violating the children were so graphic we didn’t think we could show it to a jury,” Morgan said. “He would drug the children to the point of incapacitation. The girls were like limp dolls.”

A repeat sex offender from Beverly was sentenced to 30 years in state prison today for sexually assaulting four girls after drugging them first and videotaping the attacks.

Defendant John Rodriguez, 48, apologized and said he “hurts dearly” and realizes he needs help, explaining he was sexually abused as a child by a relative and swimming instructor and believed that was “how love was shown.”

NO EXCUSES

In sentencing him as a compulsive sex offender, Superior Court Judge Patricia LeBon imposed a 30-year prison term – three consecutive 10-year terms on three counts of aggravated sexual assault against three of the 7 to 14-year-old victims, all of whom he knew.

Three lesser sentences for endangering the welfare of a child and making pornography using videotapes were consolidated with that sentence.

Kevin Morgan, assistant Burlington County prosecutor, said the videotaped acts were vile and that Rodriguez suffers from a repetitive and complusive condition for which even his doctors say there is no hope of a cure.

“The evidence of him violating the children were so graphic we didn’t think we could show it to a jury,” Morgan said. “He would drug the children to the point of incapacitation. The girls were like limp dolls.”

Morgan said the defendant’s stupidity in making the tapes led to his arrest after they were found by a woman whom the prosecutor did not identify.

Rodriguez was persuaded to plead guilty Feb. 25 to six charged in a 68-count Burlington County indictment alleging sex acts with the children from February 2005 to July 2006.

The defendant served a five-year prison term for a 1986 sexual assault on a child but he said his term ended before he could complete treatment at the state Adult Diagnostic and Treatment Center at Avenel.

Rodriguez would be at least 71 before he is eligible for parole because he must serve at least 25 and half years in prison. He also was convicted of illegal sexual contact with an adult 1992 before the stricter Megan’s Law sex offender act was passed.
