By

Travis Harvey, of Bellmawr, was sentenced in Camden County Superior Court today to a 10 year prison term. He must serve at least 8.5 years of his sentence before he is eligible for parole. A portion of his sentence has to be served in Avenel, confirmed Alexandra McVeigh, of the Camden County Prosecutor’s office.

Harvey was charged in May, 2017 with four counts of second degree Sexual Assault as well as one count of fourth degree Diseased Person Committing an Act of Sexual Penetration.

The Adult Diagnostic and Treatment Center (ADTC) currently houses approximately 700 sexual offenders who are involved in sex offender treatment, educational and vocational studies and hold numerous work positions within the institution.

In 1999, the Sexually Violent Predator Act was enacted to civilly commit those sex offenders who were still considered sexually dangerous even after completion of their criminal sentence.

These inmates were remanded by court order to a Special Treatment Unit jointly operated by the New Jersey Department of Corrections and the Department of Human Services. The NJDOC was placed in charge of security, and the Department of Human Services supervises treatment services.
