Philadelphia Man Sentenced to 10 Years in Prison for Assaulting Woman in Atlantic City

MAYS LANDING – A Philadelphia man was sentenced to over 10 years in prison for assaulting a Philadelphia woman while visiting Atlantic City last summer, Acting Atlantic County Prosecutor Jim McClain announced.
On Friday, Sept. 20, Kevin Street, 43, who is the nephew of a former Philadelphia Mayor, was sentenced to 10 years and six months in New Jersey State Prison for second-degree aggravated assault and resisting arrest.
On Aug. 23, 2012, Street assaulted a 50-year-old woman whom he was in a domestic relationship with. While Street and the victim were staying at an Atlantic City hotel, an altercation between the two occurred. During the altercation, Street punched the victim in the face with enough force to shatter the woman’s orbital bone.

The victim fled the hotel room and flagged down Atlantic City Police Officer Michael Oldroyd, who rendered aid to the victim and called for emergency medical services. The victim was taken to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center, City Campus, and treated for serious bodily injuries.
Later that day, Officer Oldroyd identified the defendant when he spotted him walking down an Atlantic City street. While the officer was placing Street into custody, he resisted arrested.
Assistant Prosecutor Tracey O’Brien represented the State in a two-day-long trial against Street last month, which resulted in the conviction of the defendant for the most serious offenses.
“Domestic Violence is a serious crime, which we will continue to prosecute vigorously,” O’Brien stated following sentencing.
Pursuant to the No Early Release Act (NERA), Street must serve 85-percent, or eight years and six months of his 10-year sentence—in addition to a consecutive 6-month sentence for resisting arrest—before he can become eligible for parole.
Street was sentenced by Superior Court Judge Albert Garofolfo.
