The defendant had previously pled guilty to two counts of Criminal Sexual Act in the Second Degree, Class D Violent Felonies on August 25, 2023. The Honorable Judge Gary Rosa ordered a Pre-sentence Investigation to be undertaken by the Delaware County Department of Probation.

As part of his guilty plea, Jaromack admitted to sexually abusing a minor child in full satisfaction of a multi-count indictment that alleged sexual abuse against two separate children. Due to the nature of the case, the details of the case and identities of the victims are not being disclosed.

On October 23, 2023, the defendant appeared for sentencing. Several members of the victims’ families either made statements to the Court or submitted written Victim Impact Statements. Mr. Jaromack also made a statement. 

After hearing Mr. Jaromack’s statement, Judge Rosa sentenced him to a total of ten (10) years of incarceration to be followed by ten (10) years of post-release supervision. The court also issued orders of protection in favor of the two children for the next 13 years. The defendant will be mandated to register as a sex offender upon being released from prison. 

Acting District Attorney Shawn Smith thanked the victims in this case for coming forward.

“I want to thank the two children who came forward and exposed Mr. Jaromack’s horrible crimes. I know that this conviction cannot begin to repair the damage that they have suffered, but I hope that they gain a little peace knowing this monster is where he belongs; in state prison.”

Mr. Smith continued, “Sex abuse is an all-too-common crime that often sees victims feeling alone and utterly traumatized. Many victims of such abuse go unnoticed or unheard. To those victims, if you can, tell someone. And to the members of our community who see something odd in a child or witness inappropriate behavior by an adult towards a child, say something.”     Smith thanked Investigator Brian Dengler of the New York State Police who led the investigation into John J. Jaromack, Jr., assisting officers of the NYSP, and victim advocate Kimberly Bryden for her work with the children and family during the court process.
