HART — A 22-year-old Hart man was sentenced to serve six months of a one-year discretionary jail sentence Wednesday, May 27, in 27th Circuit Court for a second-degree criminal sexual conduct (CSC) conviction.

Isisoro Rosas Jr., who pleaded “no-contest” to the charge last March, was arrested last February by the Oceana County Sheriff’s Office on three felony counts of second-degree CSC – person under 13. In exchange for his plea to the first count, the other two counts were dismissed.

The maximum penalty for a second-degree CSC conviction is 15 years in prison, and the sentencing guidelines are 10-19 months. The alleged incidents occurred over a period of time in Elbridge Township.

“I’m sorry for what I did, and I know it wasn’t the right thing to do,” Rosas said to Judge Anthony Monton.

Rosas’ attorney, James Marek, said his client has no prior criminal record and is “gainfully employed.” Marek requested that Rosas be allowed work release from jail, but Monton denied the request. Monton also ordered Rosas to five years probation and that he must register as a sex offender. He was given credit for one day served in jail.
