A Suspected Internet Child Predator is Snagged in Burlington County
A Little Egg Harbor man makes his first court appearance today after being arrested for attempted luring and sexual assault.
21-year-old Kerry Hilton was snagged after allegedly trying to hook up with a 13-year-old girl he met over the internet in Pemberton Township Monday. In reality, Hilton was communicating with a member of the Burlington County High Tech Crimes Unit.
The Burlington County Prosecutor's Office said that arresting officers also confiscated several kinds of alcohol and drug paraphernalia in Hilton's car at the time of the arrest.
Hilton is in the Burlington County Jail with bail set at $200,000. He's also forbidden from having contact with minors.
