GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — A Kent County man was sentenced to prison Wednesday after pleading guilty to multiple child rape charges.

Juan “John” Camargo was sentenced to decades in prison on multiple counts of criminal sexual conduct and for producing child porn.

He pleaded guilty to the charges Jan. 14.

Investigators say Camargo lured children from the playground at Autumn Ridge Apartment Homes from March to December 2017 and sexually assaulted them.

First Pacific Group, the property management company that owns the apartments, says Camargo wasn’t a resident and was illegally visiting the community without their knowledge.
