Ocean County man indicted, accused of offering girl game system for sex

Christopher Wilson, 20, of Little Egg Harbor Township,

Christopher Wilson, 20, of Little Egg Harbor Township, has been charged with second-degree attempted sexual assault and two counts of third-degree endangering the welfare of a child.

OCEAN COUNTY - The Ocean County grand jury returned an indictment Tuesday against a man accused of offering a girl a gaming system in return for sexual favors, Ocean County Prosecutor Joseph Coronato said.

Christopher Wilson, 20, of Little Egg Harbor Township, was charged with second-degree attempted sexual assault and two counts of third-degree endangering the welfare of a child. 

The indictment stems from an investigation by Ocean County Prosecutor’s Special Victims Unit Detective Stephanie Bayha and Little Egg Harbor Township Police Detective Joel Mahr.  The partnering agencies’ investigation, which began in December 2016, alleged that Wilson offered the 12-year-old victim a gaming system in return for sexual favors.

Wilson was arrested in January after Senior Assistant Prosecutor Christine Lento approved charges, Coronato said.

Judge Patricia B. Roe implemented Nicole’s Order, which requires Wilson to have no contact with the victim. Wilson remains incarcerated at the Ocean County Jail.
