John J. Davin of Lanoka Harbor pleaded guilty to one first-degree count of aggravated sexual assault Thursday, but will be sentenced in line with second-degree charges, according to information from the office of Ocean County Prosecutor Joseph D. Coronato.

In addition to the term requested by Senior Assistant Prosecutor Terry Ann Linardakis, Davein would also be subject to New Jersey’s No Early Release Act (NERA), registration as a sex offender under Megan’s Law, lifetime parole supervision and no contact with the victim as prescribed under Megan’s Law.

Sentencing is to take place following psychiatric evaluations.

Investigators accused Davin of digitally penetrating a youngster he knew in January 2013 in Lacey. He was charged the same month and has been in the Ocean County Jail since then, with bail set at $250,000.
