A man who was convicted by an Ocean County jury of sexually abusing minors will spend three decades in prison.

William Herflicker, III, 57, of Toms River, was sentenced to 30 years in prison Monday by Superior Court Judge Rochelle Gizinski. He was convicted following a two-week jury trial in January. Gizinski sentenced him to 15 years in prison, each, on two counts of aggravated sexual assault.

Herflicker worked in the Toms River Regional school district’s IT department and had no contact with children, a district spokeswoman said at the time of his indictment in 2014. He was indicted by a grand jury in June of that year for sexual offenses which he committed against two minors over a five-year period spanning 2005 through 2010.

The 15-year sentences run consecutively, meaning Herflicker must complete one before the other begins. Charges of endangering the welfare of a child and criminal sexual contact will run concurrent to the 30-year sentence. Herflicker will be required to serve 85 percent of the time and will be subject to the terms of Megan’s Law upon release.
