PHILLIPSBURG, NJ (Warren County) – A Pennsylvania man is facing sexual assault charges in Warren County, according to Warren County Prosecutor James Pfeiffer.
Barry F. Miller, 48, of East Bangor was arrested and charged on Sept. 23 with one count of first-degree aggravated sexual assault (victim under 13-years-old, second-degree sexual assault (victim under 13-years-old and defendant more than 4-years-old), and second-degree sexual assault (victim under 13-years-old but less than 16-years-old), Pfeiffer said.
“The complaint alleges that the defendant committed multiple acts of sexual penetration, specifically oral and anal penetration, as well as sexual contact upon a child under 13-years-old and continued the acts after the child was at least 13-years-old but not more than 16-years-old,” Pfeiffer said.
The incidents occurred between 1995-1998 in Phillipsburg and the child was known to Miller, Pfeiffer said.
Miller’s first appearance took place on Oct. 6 before the Honorable H. Matthew Curry, JSC and the state filed a motion to detain Miller pretrial. The hearing took place on Oct. 8 and Judge Curry denied the state’s application and released Miller on pretrial monitoring with conditions, Pfeiffer said.
