19-year-old New Jersey man charged with sex crimes

A man is being held on bond by local police after a concerned father blew the whistle on his relationship with his daughter. The New Jersey man has been charged with sex crimes including sexual assault and endangering a minor. His bond has been set at $50,000.

According to court reports, the 19-year-old man allegedly had what is being termed a “sexual dating relationship” with a girl under the age of 16, which in New Jersey is below the age of consent. The girl’s father was the one to alert police to the alleged relationship, voicing concerns to law enforcement officials. After interviewing both the girl and the man, police decided to go ahead with the arrest on June 26.

The man now faces charges including second-degree sexual assault and third degree endangering the welfare of a minor. No court date has yet been set in this case, and as of this writing the accused man remains in police custody. The identity of the girl has been withheld by police due to her status as a legal minor.

A sex crimes case of this type is not as clear-cut as similar cases of rape or sexual assault, because the issue is one of informed consent and not violence. New Jersey law sets a limit on the age at which consent can be considered informed, but this does not suggest harmful intent on the part of either involved party. Further, it can be difficult to prove the sexual nature of a relationship in the absence of tangible evidence. The burden will be on New Jersey prosecutors to prove what kind of relationship the accused man actually pursued with the underage girl.
