A sexual assault lawyer is needed if you or a loved one are facing sexual assault charges. A sexual assault can range from aggravated sexual assault, sexual assault, aggravated criminal sexual contact, criminal sexual contact, and even endangering the welfare of a child. A Rutherford man is wanted for an apparent sexual assault on a woman who was pushing her baby in a stroller. Allegedly, the man grabbed the woman in the groin area before fleeing off. Prior to this act, supposedly the suspect asked if she was single and one other question before she cut him off and told him she wasn’t into anything. After allegedly assaulting her he fled on foot to a pick up truck and left the area.

Most likely the suspect above, if apprehended, will be facing a criminal sexual contact charge. Criminal sexual contact is codified under New Jersey law as 2C:14-3(b). A criminal sexual contact is  a crime of the fourth degree. This means this charge is a felony. If convicted of this crime, a defendant can face up to eighteen (18) months in a New Jersey state prison, as well as up to a $10,000.00 fine. In addition to this, a defendant may be required to register for Megan’s Law as well as Parole Supervision for Life.
