WAYNE - Authorities say a northern New Jersey man has been arrested on charges he had sexual contact with more than a dozen teens at a church event.

Thirty-five-year-old Michael Pritchard is charged with endangering the welfare of a child and criminal sexual contact.

Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia Valdes says the Pompton Lakes resident engaged in sexual contact with 14 teens who were all 16 and 17 years old. Valdes didn't detail the nature of the contact or the teens' genders.

She says Pritchard was volunteering to feed the elderly on Dec. 5 at Calvary Temple in Wayne.

It's unclear if Pritchard has an attorney who could comment on the charges. He's being held in the Passaic County Jail on $20,000 bail.
