A man from Clifton has been arrested for allegedly sexually abusing a child at a residence in Paterson, according to the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office.
Corey Ervin, 44-year-old, was arrested on Monday and charged with aggravated sexual assault, sexual assault, aggravated criminal sexual contact, and endangering the welfare of a child.
Ervin allegedly abused the child when the victim was 12 years old. The victim was abused at a house in Paterson and in a motor vehicle, authorities said. The victim, who is now 18, disclosed the abuse to the Division of Child Protection and Permanency, which notified law enforcement.
Ervin could face decades in prison if convicted on the charges.
