Anthony Perona, 68, pleaded guilty Aug. 2 after a jury trial on several related charges that resulted in a hung jury.

Perona admitted to engaging in sexual conduct with a juvenile female.

The conviction also subjects Perona to parole supervision for life, sex offender registration under Megan’s Law and a restraining order that prohibits any contact with the victim.
