Man faces sexual assault charges three years after alleged attack


Many of our New Jersey readers have probably seen news stories before about someone getting charged with a sex crimes offense years after the alleged attack took place. That is because, unlike some other types of criminal charges, allegations of sexual assault can sometimes be reported to law enforcement officials years after the alleged incident occurred, and the allegations will be investigated.

Take, for instance, a report that detailed the charges against a New Jersey man recently. The man is accused of sexually abusing a young girl almost three years ago, when the child was 11-years-old. The young girl is now 14-years-old and she just recently informed her mother about the alleged incident. The 46-year-old accused individual is now facing charges of aggravated sexual assault and child endangerment.

Initial details regarding the alleged sexual abuse in this case were sketchy at best, although the young girl reportedly provided law enforcement officials with specific details. However, as time goes on those details are sure to spill over into the news. At that point the accused individual will not only have to worry about planning a criminal defense strategy to present in court, he will also have potentially damaging information regarding these allegations becoming public knowledge.

Alleged sex offenses against children are some of the most serious charges a person could face. In this case, the 46-year-old suspect is being held in the county jail on $300,000 bail as he awaits his opportunity to be heard in court. And, unlike in many other cases, there is no option for the suspect to pay 10 percent of the bail to be released.
