JERSEY CITY, NJ– A 42-year-old Jersey City man has been charged with molesting his 15-year-old daughter in her room on Sunday.

The man is charged with criminal sexual contact and endangering the welfare of a child. The charges are based on the girl’s videotaped statement to investigators and text messages she sent to her mother and a friend saying what her father allegedly did, according to the criminal complaint. 

On Tuesday the girl told West District police and an investigator from the state Division of Child Protection and Permanency that her father got into her bed beside her, rubbed his body against her and “he continued by touching her…” the complaint says.

The father made his first appearance on the charges in Criminal Justice Reform Court in Jersey City on Wednesday via video ink from Hudson County jail in Kearny. At the hearing, he was ordered released with conditions of supervision pending prosecution.

The defendant’s next court date is on July 19 before Hudson County Superior Court Judge Paul DePascale in the Hudson County Administration Building in Jersey City. His name has been omitted in this report to protect the identity of the alleged victim.
