FLEMINGTON, NJ – A 51-year-old borough man has pleaded guilty to sexual assault and will be sentenced Nov. 1, according to a press release from Acting Hunterdon County Prosecutor Michael J. Williams.

Carlos Zacarias, 51, pleaded guilty to second-degree sexual assault, second-degree endangering the welfare of a child, and fourth-degree contempt of court.

Zacarias was arrested last year after a joint investigation by detectives from the Prosecutor’s Office’s Special Victims Unit and Flemington police and the crimes took place over several months between Sept. 2017 and Feb. 2018, Williams said.
