Morganville teacher charged with sexually assaulting boy at home

NJ.com reports:

Authorities have charged a teacher at a Monmouth County school with sexually assaulting a 12-year-old boy at his township home in 2012.

Detectives arrested Menachem A. Chinn, 36, Thursday night at East Windsor police headquarters, township police and the Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office announced Friday.

Chinn is a teacher at the Shalom Torah Academy in the Morganville section of Marlboro, the prosecutor’s office said.

The school’s website lists him as a rabbi who instructs 6th and 7th grade boys. Another website, for a Jewish youth organization, also lists him as an instructor.

The prosecutor’s office said East Windsor police recently learned of the allegation and started an investigation with the prosecutor’s office.

It has found that during one occasion at Chinn’s home in 2012, when the victim was 12 years old, Chinn inappropriately touched the boy, the office said.

The prosecutor’s office did not elaborate on how or why Chinn was allegedly with the boy at his home.

Chinn is charged with one count each of sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child. A detention hearing for Chinn in Mercer County Superior Court was pending Friday.

A call to Shalom Torah was not immediately returned Friday evening.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact Mercer County Prosecutor’s Detective Alicia Bergondo at 609-989-6568 or East Windsor Police Detective Thomas Meyer at 609-448-5678.
