ATLANTIC CITY — A local man has admitted sexually assaulting four children, according to Atlantic County Prosecutor Damon G. Tyner.

Adan Otero, 27, pleaded guilty Feb. 9 to four counts of aggravated sexual assault and one count of endangering the welfare of a child.

As part of the plea, Otero received a recommendation of 17 years in prison under the No Early Release Act.

Otero sexually assaulted four juvenile victims over the period of several months in spring 2016, according to a news release from the Prosecutor’s Office. He assaulted the victims in various locations in Atlantic City. Otero pleaded guilty to endangering the welfare of a fifth child. The victims were all younger than 10.

Otero is in custody in the Atlantic County jail in lieu of bail as this was a pre-bail-reform case.

The investigation was a cooperative effort between the prosecutor’s detectives and city police.
