Ex-Ramsey Cop Gets Split Verdict in Child Fondling Case

A former northern New Jersey police officer has been acquitted of child sexual assault charges but convicted of child endangerment.

Jeffrey Kimmel (NJ Department of Corrections)

The Record of Woodland Park reports that 49-year-old Jeffrey Kimmel faces up to 10 years in prison following his conviction on Monday. Kimmel was a patrol officer with the Ramsey police department.

During the trial, prosecutors said Kimmel fondled a 6-year-old girl in a relative’s home in 2010. But the defense claimed the girl’s “sketchy memory meant Kimmel should be acquitted on both counts.

Kimmel was convicted of stealing more than $110,000 from his police union while he served as its treasurer. He received a six-year sentence but was freed on parole after serving seven months.

Authorities say his parole may be revoked due to the child endangerment conviction.
