Hunterdon County man accused of sexually assaulting minors

FLEMINGTON, NJ (Hunterdon County) – A Hunterdon County man has been arrested and charged with sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child, according acting Hunterdon County Prosecutor Michael J. Williams.

Darren Pieper, 44, of Readington Township, was arrested and charged on July 22 with three counts of second-degree sexual assault of a minor and three counts of third-degree endangering the welfare of a child via sexual conduct, Williams said.

“These charges involve three different juvenile victims who were assaulted on various dates between 2011 and 2015. The crimes occurred in both Readington Township and Raritan Township,” Williams said.

This is an ongoing investigation involving multiple law enforcement agencies, and anyone with relevant information about Pieper to call the prosecutor’s office, Williams said.
