Warwick man to serve eight years in prison for sexually assaulting minor

WARWICK, R.I. (WLNE)- A Warwick man has been sentenced to serve eight years in state prison for sexually assaulting a minor, according to Attorney General Peter Neronha.

Edwin Aleman, 42, waived indictment and entered a plea of no contest to one count of first-degree child molestation.

In July, Aleman allegedly sexually assaulted a female, that was under the age of 14, at a home in Warwick.

The victim and a parent immediately reported the assault to the Warwick Police Department, and Aleman was arrested shortly after.

On Monday, Aleman was sentenced to 20 years, with eight to serve and the balance suspended on probation.

The court required that Aleman have a no contact order with the victim, register as a sex offender for the remainder of his life, use GPS monitoring, attend sex offender counseling, and be subject to community supervision.
