Millville NJ Man Sentenced for Child Endangerment, Eluding Police in Deptford

Millville New Jersey Eluding SuspectA New Jersey man was recently sentenced to 6 years in state prison after being convicted of eluding police and child endangerment in Deptford Township, NJ.

The 25-year-old suspect, who is from Millville NJ, committed the eluding offense in 2013. According to prosecutors, the suspect committed the sex crimes prior to 2013.

The suspect was accused of engaging in an illicit sexual relationship with an underage girl. Authorities said that the victim was been the ages of 13 and 16 when the suspect had sexual relations with her.

In 2012, the victim reportedly gave birth to the suspect’s child.

The following year, the victim’s father reported the suspect’s alleged sexual offenses to the Deptford Township Police Department. Police officers investigated, conducted interviews, and later obtained an arrest warrant.

When Deptford Township police attempted to serve the warrant at the suspect’s residence, the suspect reportedly tried to flee the scene in his pickup truck. Police chased the suspect and he eventually crashed his vehicle on Delsea Drive.

The suspect later admitted to Gloucester County prosecutors that he had a consensual sexual relationship with the victim. He was subsequently charged with endangering the welfare of a child and eluding police.

In May 2015, the suspect pleaded guilty to both criminal charges against him.

The superior court judge has now sentenced the suspect to a term of incarceration of 6 years in NJ State Prison. Additionally, the judge imposed a concurrent sentence of 5 years in prison on the child endangerment charges.

The judge ordered the suspect to serve his sentence in New Jersey State Prison, as opposed to a sex offender treatment center. The judge specified that she would not require the suspect to serve his time in the NJ Adult Diagnostic and Treatment Center for sex offenders because the suspect’s sexual relationship with the victim was consensual.

When the suspect finishes his prison time, he will be required to register as a sex offender under Megan’s Law registration requirements. He will be subject to parole supervision for 15 years after his release from police custody.
