JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Feliciano Montijo, 61, was sentenced Tuesday afternoon to 30 years in prison followed by lifetime probation for the molestation of a child.
Montijo was convicted last month on one count of lewd or lascivious molestation of a minor.
In July 2010, the 6-year-old male victim was under the care of Montijo for the evening.
During this time, he inappropriately touched the victim, even though the boy repeatedly asked him to stop. The victim disclosed to his mother what had happened and she immediately notified authorities. Montijo fled the state and was later arrested.
Assistant State Attorneys Catherine Licandro and Joel Cooper prosecuted the case.
