Man Faces Charge of Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child
A grand jury voted to indict a Tinton Falls man on charges of a serious crime that allegedly occurred in Middletown between 2002-2006.
A Tinton Falls man has been indicted by a Monmouth County grand jury on one count of aggravated sexual assault of a child under 13, and one count of endangering the welfare of a child by engaging in sexual contact.
James Kalemba, 48, of Autumn Drive will stand trial on the charges, which allegedly occurred in Middletown. The Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office says the aggravated sexual assault charge allegedly occurred at different times between 2002 and 2006; and the endangerment charge between 2000 and 2007.
Aggravated sexual assault is a crime of the first degree, and if found guilty, a defendant may face a 10-20 year prison term. Child endangerment is a crime of the second degree, and carries with it the potential for a 5-10 year prison term.
The grand jury's decision Wednesday is a formal charge, not a conviction. A defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
