Man accused of sexually assaulting 5-year-old boy

An alarming Ledger story concerning an alleged sexual assault against a 5-year old boy was posted yesterday (see here).

The headline caught my eye as there have been rumors for weeks that a Plainfield man was arrested on September 28 (a month ago) on a similar -- if not identical -- charge.

The difference here is that though it is rumored the local man was charged, removed from Plainfield's jail to the Union County jail, with bail set at $150,000, no information on the case seems to be publicly available;
whereas, the subject of the Ledger story was arrested on this past Saturday and the story appeared in Monday's editions.

Does anyone know anything further about this matter and/or why it has not been made public?

Dan - the link that you provided was to a Parsippany man charges with a sexual assault. This has nothing to do with Plainfield as I can see. Please don't alarm the citizens because there is sexual abuse in Morris County as well as Union

The story about the Plainfield man and domestic abuse is deliberately being kept out of the papers because of connections to someone in "leadership" at the state level. We may see more on this AFTER the election, but for now it's hush-hush.
