Andrew Albertorio, 25, was sentenced to 10 years in imprisonment for raping a 14-year-old employee. Prosecutors were seeking a sentence of 144 months, but in the end, he was sentenced to 120 months in jail.
In November 2018, the pair started talking via SnapChat, and from there, things escalated. The victim was resistant to his sexual desires and called him much older to her. The fact that he was her manager also made her uncomfortable.
According to Jeannice Reding, District Court Judge gave him a lesser sentence because Albertorio had a limited supervisory role concerning the victim.
Albertorio Pleaded Guilty
Albertorio pleaded guilty in November to an account of first-degree criminal sexual conduct. He also apologized to the victim’s family for his inappropriate and illegal behavior. But the prosecutors complained that he showed no remorse throughout the case.
This came after a year of five counts of first- degree criminal sexual conduct charges filed against him.
Extra Payments To Avoid Child Labor Violations
Albertorio was the victim’s night manager. According to the complaint, he used to flirt with her and talk about having sex with her. To this, the victim objected, and Albertorio respected her will. But when the victim found herself alone with him one night in the restaurant’s walk-in cooler, Albertorio pressured her to have sex with him.
This was not the end. He had sex with her on several occasions, including his car, the restaurant, and at his home in the following months.
The victim also told officials that Albertorio gave her additional hours and paid her extra money or out of pocket so that she could work late and avoid child labor law violations.
