Eatontown Detective Admits Asking Woman for Sex Favors
A central New Jersey police detective will give up his job after admitting that he requested sexual favors from a woman he had arrested late last year.
The Asbury Park Press reports that 33-year-old Philip Emanuele, a Brick Township resident who served with the Eatontown police force for the past eight years, pleaded guilty Wednesday to charges of criminal coercion and tampering with physical evidence.
Besides forfeiting his job, Emanuele is expected to get a probationary sentence when he's sentenced later this year. In return for his plea, Monmouth County prosecutors dropped two counts of official misconduct and one count of sexual assault.
Emanuele, a married father of two, sought the favors from the woman, who is in her 20s, after arresting her on a theft charge in December.
