A city man has been arrested for allegedly sexually abusing a 12-year-old child for three years, according to the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office.

Daniel Walter Jolon Herrera, 28-year-old, has been charged with first-degree aggravated sexual assault, second-degree sexual assault, two counts of second-degree endangering the welfare of a child, and two counts of second-degree hindering apprehension.

Police were notified about the sexual abuse on December 15, 2020. Prosecutor’s office detectives interviewed the victim and multiple witnesses. Herrera allegedly sexually abused the victim numerous times in the child’s home in Passaic City and Paterson between November 2016 and 2019, authorities said.

Herrera could face decades in prison if convicted on the charges.

    I am not sure why would this young man that seem able of getting a age appropriate young person would mess with a child.
    Clearly this is a problem .
    Decades behind bars, life in prison would be good. No plea deal it shouldn’t be offer,
    Yes I would say this if it was a family member , no adult should touch a child. It’s wrong of every level.
    I know I won’t be call to be a jury my mind is already made up.
    Omg 3 years what a torture for this child. I can only hope that she is in counseling.
