Warren County man sentenced to prison on sexual assault, endangering welfare of a child charges

BELVIDERE, NJ (Warren County) – An Oxford Township man has been sentenced to prison on sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child charges, according to Warren County Prosecutor James Pfeiffer.

On July 21, Justin D. Williams,33, was sentenced on the following charges, two counts of first-degree aggravated sexual assault (victim under 13-years-old), two counts of second-degree sexual assault (victim under 13-years-old) and  three counts of second-degree endangering the welfare of a child, Pfeiffer said.

Judge Matthew Curry sentenced Williams to fifteen years in New Jersey state prison pursuant to the no early release act on each first-degree count and seven years in New Jersey state prison on each second-degree count, Pfeiffer said.

The no early release act applies to all sexual assault counts and all sentences are to run concurrent. Williams is also subject to Megan’s Law Registration and parole supervision for life, Pfeiffer said.

On Aug.16, 2019, a Warren County jury found Williams guilty of these seven charges of a fourteen count indictment, Pfeiffer said.

These convictions stem from Williams committing multiple acts of sexual contact and sexual penetration upon the child victim. The acts occurred between June 2008 and June 2013, beginning when the child was 6-years-old until the child turned 11-years-old, Pfeiffer said.

The jury also found Williams guilty of endangering the welfare of a child stemming from sexual conduct between the diverse dates of June 2013 to June 2015, Pfeiffer said.

The child was known to Williams and these crimes occurred in Washington Borough, Oxford Township and Washington Township, Warren County, Pfeiffer said
