According to Ocean County Prosecutor Joseph Coronato, Frederic Whitehead was arrested following a probe that stemmed from a discussion between the 13-year-old alleged victim and authorities in Cobb County, where she now lives.

Coronato says that authorities there contacted his office after their interview revealed details about abuse that took place when she lived in Waretown. Those details, says Coronato, were substantiated by her mother.

Whitehead is charged with aggravated sexual assault, sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child. Under Nicole’s Law, he’s barred from any contact with the teen.

Ocean County and Waretown investigators suspect that the case may involve more than just one victim. If you think you might have informatoin relevant to the probe, call the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Special Victims Unit, 732-929-2027, or Waretown Police, 609-693-4007.
