A 24-year-old summer camp counselor has been indicted on charges that he molested three boys at a North Jersey facility.
Joshua Daranijo, of Levittown, Pennsylvania, was indicted by a Hunterdon County Grand Jury for three counts each of sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child, both second-degree charges.
He has also been charged with third-degree endangering the welfare of a child, for possession of child pornography, Hunterdon County Prosecutor Renée Robeson said.
Daranijo has been accused of fondling two 10-year-olds and an 11-year-old, at Camp Bernie in Lebanon Township.
Parents of campers were emailed in July about the alleged incidents before Daranijo was arrested in August.
