Marine pleads guilty to sexual assault and burglary in attacks on SUNY New Paltz students

According to the Ulster County District Attorney’s Office, Lance Corporal Kevin Guerrero, 20, of the United States Marines, stationed in New Windsor, pleaded guilty on Friday, March 31, to the violent felonies of sexual abuse and burglary.

District Attorney Holley Carnright said that Guerrero entered the homes of three SUNY New Paltz students in off-campus housing last September and attempted to sexually assault the female students therein, while they were asleep.

“The defendant’s behavior violated all expectations of safety, civility and privacy which our student population should enjoy,” said Carnright, who described this case as unusual in that this type of crime committed by someone with minimal ties to the community is not commonly seen by his office. Carnright also lauds the New Paltz Police Department for their swift and tireless investigation, which identified and located the defendant in a very short period of time.


Guerrero’s sentencing is scheduled for June 14.
