Acting Morris County Prosecutor Fredric M. Knapp and Denville Police Chief Christopher Wagner announce that Raymond Boyle, 58 years old, of Denville, New Jersey has been charged with Second Degree Sexual Assault and Third Degree Neglect of a Disabled Person.

The victim, who is severely autistic, disclosed to authorities that the defendant allegedly had engaged in an act of sexual penetration with her.  Defendant was interviewed and admitted to “accidentally” penetrating the victim.

After a criminal investigation conducted by the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office and the Denville Police Department, and led by Detective Janet Thai of the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office and Detective Jeff Tucker of the Denville Police Department, Boyle was arrested on December 2, 2013.

The Honorable Stuart A. Minkowitz, J.S.C. set bail at $35,000 no 10 percent, cash, bond or property.  The defendant was unable to post bail and was remanded to the Morris County Correctional Facility.

The investigation is active and ongoing.  No other information is being released at this time.

Acting Prosecutor Fredric Knapp would like to thank the Denville Police Department and the members of the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office Sex Crimes/Child Endangerment Unit whose efforts contributed to this arrest.

A criminal complaint is merely an accusation.  Despite this accusation, the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until he or she has been proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
