Union County teacher arrested for sexually assaulting 14 year old girl

A middle school teacher and softball coach in Union County has been arrested for carrying on a sexual relationship with a 14 year old girl. He is being held on $400,000 bail and has been charged with two counts of first degree aggravated sexual assault, two counts of second degree sexual assault, one count of second degree luring, one count of second degree endangering the welfare of a child, one count of third degree aggravated criminal sexual contact, and one count of fourth degree criminal sexual contact.

 

Allegations of child sexual abuse are taken very seriously in New Jersey and can result in lengthy jail terms, steep fines, and lifetime inclusion on the state’s sex offender registry. Just being accused of child sexual abuse, however, can ruin a person’s reputation and destroy their family and professional relationships forever, even if they’re not guilty. Because of this, it’s vitally important that defendants facing child sex crimes charges consult with a knowledgeable attorney before speaking to police or making any deals with prosecutors. Their lawyers may be able to negotiate for reduced charges or even secure an acquittal based on constitutional violations, inadequate evidence, or procedural errors.
