Roberson was charged after one of the victims, now 18, told police he had been sexually assaulted as a child.

Investigator Colin Feneis of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office and Detective Crispin Farrace of the East Brunswick Police Department determined that Roberson sexually assaulted the victim on various occasions while he was between the ages of 8 and 13.

The investigation further determined that another child, now a 22-year-old man, had been sexually assaulted on one occasion at the defendant’s home when he was 7 or 8 years old.

The investigation is active and is continuing. Anyone with information is asked to call Investigator Feneis of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office at (732) 745-3652, or Detective Farrace of the East Brunswick Police Department at (732) 390-6990.

As is the case with all criminal defendants, the charges against Roberson are merely accusations and he is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
