Morris County Accountant Gets 5 Years for Attempted Luring

A Morris County accountant was sentenced to five years in prison for attempted luring and attempted endangering after making efforts to have sexual meetings with persons he believed to be 13- and 14-year-old girls, according to Atlantic County Prosecutor Jim McClain.

Stephen Bubniak, 56, of Florham Park, pleaded guilty to second-degree attempted luring and third-degree attempted endangering on Oct. 17.

Bubniak began conducting sexual Internet chats with someone he believed to be a 14-year-old girl in January of 2011. He was actually speaking to an undercover Prosecutor’s Office detective.

Bubniak was met by detectives on Feb. 3, 2011 when he arrived a location in Hamilton Township at which he had arranged to meet “the girl” for a sexual encounter. He was arrested for attempted luring and attempted endangering and lodged at the Atlantic County Justice Facility on $250,000 bail.

Further investigation found that Bubniak had also arranged to meet another detective, disguised as a 13-year-old girl, the day following his arrest.

He was additionally charged with attempted endangering for the arranging of that sexual encounter on Feb. 7, 2011.

Authorities located gift cards in the hotel room that the defendant told the girls he would buy for them, according to Assistant Prosecutor Janet Gravitz.

In addition to five years in N.J. State Prison, Bubniak must also register in accordance with Megan’s Law requirements and be subject to parole supervision for life.
