State of Florida v. Monserrate Teron
Case Number: 21-00472-CFFA
Palm Coast Man Sentenced to Life for Capital Sexual Battery
BUNNELL – During a hearing this morning, defendant Monserrate Teron was sentenced to two life sentences and 30 years in prison, all to run concurrent, for his recent convictions.
The defendant was found guilty as charged by a Flagler County jury in July of two counts of Sexual Battery on a Person Less Than 12 Years of Age and Lewd or Lascivious Molestation on a Person Less Than 12 Years of Age.
“This defendant molested a young girl for three years,” State Attorney R.J. Larizza said about the case. “It is a horrific case of child sex abuse, but Teron will spend the rest of his life in prison and not hurt this victim or another child again.”
The case was investigated by the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office. Assistant State Attorney Melissa Clark successfully prosecuted the case for the State. The Honorable Terence Perkins presided over the case and pronounced sentence.
