Newark NJ Man Charged with Child Endangerment, Allegedly Abused Son

Newark NJ Child Endangerment AttorneysNewark New Jersey police arrested a local man accused of using an electrical cord to punish his son.

According to the Newark acting public safety director, the 48-year-old suspect abused his 13-year-old child at the family’s residence on the 20 block of Norwood Street in Newark, NJ.

Officials at the boy’s school noticed that he had injuries, so they contacted the boy’s mom. The victim’s mother later dialed 911 and notified the Newark Police Department, prompting police officers to go to the house and investigate.

After an investigation by the Newark Police Department Special Victims Unit, the suspect was placed under arrest. He has been charged with endangering the welfare of a child and cruelty to a child.

If the suspect is convicted on the very serious criminal charges, he faces significant penalties. As set forth by N.J.S.A. 2C:24-4, anyone who causes harm to a child can be charged with the felony-level offense of child endangerment. Moreover, the penalties imposed under the statute are more severe when the offender is related to the child or entrusted to care for the child.

After being arrested, the suspect was transported to the Essex County Correctional Facility in Newark, NJ. He was being held at the jail in lieu of $35,000 bail.

The Newark Police Department has asked that anyone who has information about crimes against children or anyone else please contact authorities by calling the Crime Stoppers tip line at 877-NWK-TIPS or 877-NWK-GUNS.
