The stepfather of an 11-year-old Jersey City girl has been accused of sexually abusing her “on numerous occasions” over the past three years, The Jersey Journal reports.
From January 1, 2013, to October 10 this year, the stepfather — a 34-year-old Jersey City man whose name is not being released to protect the identity of the victim — allegedly touched the girl’s private parts against her will, the complaint stated.
The 34-year-old was being held at the Hudson County jail in Kearny. The case is being handled by the Special Victims Unit of the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office. The stepfather has been charged with sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child. His initial bail has been set at $100,000, cash or bond, with the condition of no contact with the victim, the complaint said.
