PASSAIC, N.J. -- Jurors in Paterson on Wednesday convicted a Passaic man of sexually assaulting his stepdaughter when she was 14 and he was 26.

Husseyn Soriano, 29, was found guilty of aggravated sexual assault, sexual assault and child endangerment following testimony from several witnesses, including the now-17-year-old victim, Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia M. Valdes said.

The jury also watched Soriano’s video-recorded confession to Detective Sabrina McKoy of the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office, who also testified.

Superior Court Judge Marybel Mercado-Ramirez set a Jan. 27 sentencing date for Soriano, who was remanded to the Passaic County Jail.

A conviction for aggravated sexual assault in New Jersey carries a maximum term of up to 20 years in state prison -- 85% of which must be served before the convict is eligible for parole. A sexual assault conviction can bring up to 10 years.

Assistant Passaic County Prosecutor Anneris Hernandez handled the case. Soriano was represented by defense attorney Kathryn Panaccione.
