Bernard Roldan - Repeat Sex Offender - Gets only 8 years for molesting 6 year old boy

An Atlantic City man was sentenced to eight years in prison Friday after he accosted a 6-year-old boy in a casino arcade, Atlantic County Prosecutor Ted Housel said.
Bernard Roldan, 45, pleaded guilty in April to one count of sexual assault, Chief Assistant Prosecutor Ellen Loughney said. He admitted that on Aug. 18, 2008, he rubbed his genitals against a 6-year-old Jersey City boy who was playing an arcade game at Harrah's Resort. He was arrested that day at the casino and indicted Dec. 4.
Roldan served four years in prison for a similar offense and was released in November 2006, according to the state Department of Corrections Web site.

Roldan must serve 85 percent of Friday's sentence before being eligible for parole, Loughney said. He will be subject to registration under Megan's Law and parole supervision for the rest of his life.
