A sex offender appeared in court Friday to be sentenced for sexually assaulting a teenage girl in 2007, but the decision in this case was postponed until mid-June.
The defendant, Raymond Parkman, had previously pled guilty to attempted sexual abuse in the first degree, but Judge John Moore adjourned the case until the original judge who took the plea can preside over the case.
The incident took place last July, when a 15-year-old girl claimed she was sexually abused in an elevator of an apartment building in Soundview by a Parks Department employee.
Parkman was arrested, and he has been behind bars ever since. His attorney worked out a plea bargain deal that could potentially allow him to spend less time in jail or even avoid it altogether.
The Bronx District Attorney?s Office said that under the plea deal, the defendant will become a predicate offender for any future felony convictions, and potentially a level 3 sex offender under mandatory lifetime reporting every 90 days.
Parkman is no stranger to the law, just a month before last year?s incident, he was wanted for not registering as a sex offender.
The next court day is scheduled for June 17. Parkman will also be back in court on June 18 for sentencing after failing to register as a sex offender last year.
