Princeton Resident Charged with Criminal Sexual Contact


A Princeton resident allegedly gave marijuana and alcohol to four youths in a wooded area near Bayard Lane several times in July and groped a 15-year-old female victim once after giving the teen the drugs, police said.

Ricardo Jack, 40, of Leigh Avenue has been charged with criminal sexual contact and six counts of endangering the welfare of a child, police said.

The female victim reported the incident this week. Arrest warrants were issued for Jack, who was caught in Trenton by the New York and New Jersey Regional Fugitive Task Force this morning and was turned over to the Princeton Borough Police.  The Borough Police Department was assisted in the investigation by the Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office. Jack is currently being held in lieu of bail.
