Millville Man Sentenced for Sexual Assault of 4-Year-Old Girl

Marvin Stidham, 64, was found guilty in January by a Cumberland County jury on two counts related to the sexual assault of a young girl.

Stidham was arrested in 2021 after an investigation found he had had sexual contact with a 4-year-old girl for over 5 months in Commercial Township.

Stidham has been in Bridgeton's South Woods State Prison since October when he was sentenced for forgery.

Monday, Judge Cristen P. Arrigo granted the State's motion that Stidham be sentenced to an extended term.

He was sentenced to 12 years with no early release on a second-degree sexual assault charge and 5 years for a third-degree charge of endangering the welfare of the child.

The sentences will run concurrently.
