A police officer in Rockaway Township New Jersey has been charged with sexual assault, but he managed to secure his release from police custody while the charges are pending.
The suspect is a 44-year-old man who lives in Rockaway Township and who works for the Rockaway Township Police Department in Morris County, NJ. He was placed under arrest and charged with sexual assault after detectives with the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office conducted an investigation into allegations of sexual abuse.
According to authorities, the suspect sexually abused two young girls: a 15-year-old female and a 16-year-old female. The suspect reportedly gave the teen victims alcohol and drugs and had sex with them.
