Newark NJ Domestic Violence LawyersNewark NJ police recently arrested a local man accused of going way too far in the punishment of his son.

The alleged abuse was classified as a domestic violence incident. According to Newark authorities, the 48-year-old suspect used an electrical cord to abuse his 13-year-old son. The domestic violence reportedly occurred at the family’s home, which is located on the 200 block of Norwood Street in Newark, New Jersey.

Law enforcement became aware of the alleged domestic violence after an employee at the boy’s school saw bruises and other injuries on the victim. School officials notified the boy’s mother, who later alerted the Newark Police Department to the alleged abuse.

The Newark Police Department Special Victims Unit got involved and conducted an investigation, which included going to the family’s residence and interviewing both the suspect and the alleged victim.

At the end of the investigation, the suspect was arrested and charged with endangering the welfare of a child and cruelty to a child.

If the suspect is eventually convicted on the domestic violence charges, he would be in store for severe penalties. As set forth by N.J.S.A. 2C:24-4, a person who causes physical harm to a child is subject to prison time. In this case, the penalties could be even more stringent because the suspect is related to the victim.

After being placed under arrest, the suspect was remanded to the Essex County Correctional Facility in Newark, New Jersey. He was being held at the jail in lieu of a $35K bail amount.

Newark police has asked that anyone with information about crimes being committed against children or anyone else please notify authorities by calling the Crime Stoppers tip line at 877-NWK-TIPS or 877-NWK-GUNS.
