Charged with Aggravated Sexual Assault in Monroe Township

Bail has been set at $250,000 for a Monroe Township man arrested on multiple counts of aggravated sexual assault for his alleged sexual relationship with a 15-year-old girl. The 39-year-old defendant was arrested on Friday after various incidents of sexual penetration were brought to the police’s attention. The investigation is still under way as police try to piece together all the facts in yet another case of aggravated sexual assault in New Jersey. A charge of aggravated sexual assault can carry an additional 15 years in prison when compared to possible penalties for a charge of sexual assault. While both sexual assault and aggravated sexual assault require an act of sexual penetration, aggravated sexual assault will only be charged if the victim is under 13 years old or under 16-years-old and has a special relationship with the accused, for example, a blood relationship, disciplinary or supervisory relationship, or the accused stands in a guardian type position to the victim.
