HANOVER TOWNSHIP, NJ - A New Providence man was charged Tuesday with two counts of Human Trafficking in a case brought by the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office under the direction of Prosecutor Fredric M. Knapp and the Hanover Township Police Department under the direction of Chief Mark Roddy.     

The latest charges against Torrie Fogg, 41, follow earlier charges filed last week.

On August 17, the Hanover Township Police Department responded to a dispute at a local hotel.  While investigating the case, the alleged victim,  a 31-year-old female told police she was being held against her will and was forced to prostitute herself. It was alleged that Fogg made arrangements for the victim to meet with several male clients at area hotels and would then collect the money received after the sexual acts were completed.  The victim told police that she was assaulted by Fogg if she did not comply and engage in sexual acts with the clients.

As a result of those allegations, Fogg was charged last week with Aggravated Assault, in violation of N.J.S 2C:12-1b(2), a crime of the third degree; Criminal Restraint, in violation of N.J.S 2C:13-2a, a crime of the third degree; Terroristic Threats, in violation of N.J.S 2C:12-3a, a crime of the third degree; Possession of a Controlled Dangerous Substance With the Intent to Distribute, in violation of N.J.S 2C:35-5b(3), a crime of the third degree; Possession of a Controlled Dangerous Substance, in violation of N.J.S 2C:35-10a(1), a crime of the third degree; Promoting Prostitution, in violation of N.J.S 2C:34-1b(5), a crime of the third degree; and False Imprisonment, in violation of 2C:13-3, a disorderly persons offense.   

On today’s date, August 22, Fogg was also charged with two counts of Human Trafficking, in violation of N.J.S 2C:13-8a(1)(b) and N.J.S. 2C:13-8a(1)(g), crimes of the first degree. 

The defendant is being held at the Morris County Correctional Facility pending a pre-trial detention hearing on the original charges, which is currently set for Wednesday.

Prosecutor Knapp would like to thank the Hanover Township Police Department, the Morris County Sheriff’s Office – Criminal Investigation Section, and the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office Sex Crimes/Child Endangerment Unit for their involvement in this investigation. 

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Detective/Supervisor Marshall Wang of the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office Sex Crimes/Child Endangerment Unit at 973-285-6200.   

A criminal complaint is merely an accusation. Despite this accusation, the defendant is presumed innocent until he is proven guilty in a court of law.
