Convicted child molester sentenced for stealing from family friend

A youth tennis pro already convicted of molesting one of his students faced a judge in New Jersey Monday on charges of stealing $100,000 from a family friend undergoing cancer treatments.

APP.com reports Terry Kuo strongly denied he stole saying he wasn’t raised that way. He demanded the court take back his guilty plea. Judge Marc C. Lemiuex denied the request and sentenced him to a 7-year term to be served at the same time at his current 56 1/2 year sentence for molestation.

Back in 2019, AsAmNews reported that a court arraigned Kuo of Freehold, New Jersey on 47 counts of kidnapping, sexual assault and child pornography. He would be found guilty and sentenced in December of last year.

Prosecutors say he showered his victim with expensive gifts while forcing her to have sex with him.

Kuo told the court his guilty plea was coerced from him by a cell mate who beat him up. He also accused the judge of bias.

“You’re making accusations again,” Lemiuex said in court. “You’re making them against the court, you’re making them against the victim, you’re making them against the inmate. It’s always somebody else’s fault except yours.”

The judge also announced Kuo faces a new charge of harassing a judicial official. That’s after allegations Kuo talked about paying to have someone killed during one of his previous trials.
