A Morris County NJ grand jury indicted two Morristown men on charges of sexually assaulting a minor.
The suspects, a 36-year-old Morristown man and a 50-year-old Morristown man, were accused of raping a nine-year-old girl in 2009.
After detectives with the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office concluded their investigation into the suspects, prosecutors brought criminal charges against the suspects. The sexual offense charges against the two suspects including charges for sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child.
Now that the suspects have been indicted, they will await trial in Morris County Superior Court. The men are being held in Morris County Jail until the case is resolved.
A third suspect, a 20-year-old Morristown NJ man, was also charged with sexually assaulting the nine-year-old victim. However, the suspect avoided trial by reaching a plea agreement with prosecutors. He was subsequently sentenced to four years in NJ State Prison.
