A Marina man was sentenced Wednesday in a Salinas courtroom to 55 years in prison for molesting a 13-year-old girl for four years, prosecutors said. Romeo Rosario, 33, was sentenced by Superior Court judge Pamela Butler for several felony counts of sexual assault including three counts of forcible rape, a lewd act on a child, a forcible lewd act on a child and forcible sexual penetration on a child under 14. The girl disclosed to school authorities on Oct. 30, 2015, that Rosario molested her repeatedly in his home, according to prosecutors. She made the disclosure during a meeting with school officials because of recent truancy by the child from school because of the abuse.
