A police officer who served on the Jersey City force has admitted he traveled to Atlantic City earlier this year in a bid to sexually assault two young girls.
Stephen Wilson, a 34-year-old Bayonne resident, pleaded guilty Thursday to attempted aggravated sexual assault.
Prosecutors will recommend he get an eight-year state prison term when he’s sentenced Oct. 21.
Authorities say Wilson used a chat app to speak with other adults who offered to provide him access to two girls, ages 8 and 10, who he could sexually assault in exchange for $200.
Wilson was arrested Feb. 26 when he went to Atlantic City to meet the adults.
AP wire services helped contribute to this report.
