Jane Dornick “BusyBusy Mom” Pleads Guilty to Sexual Exploitation of a Minor

July 14, 2014 at 6:55 PM

TRENTON, NJ – South Plainfield resident Jane Dornick, 53, pleaded guilty, prior to the selection of a jury, to Count One of an indictment charging her with three counts of sexual exploitation of a child. Dornick was arrested on Feb. 19, 2013. The remaining counts will be dismissed at sentencing. Dornick entered her plea before U.S. District Judge Freda L. Wolfson in Trenton federal court.  

According to documents filed in this case and statements made in court:

On Aug. 16, 2010, Dornick coerced and used “Victim 1,” a minor female, to perform sexually explicit acts and live stream them over the Internet to former South Plainfield Police Captain Michael Grennier, 51, who watched remotely via his computer in his home in South Plainfield.

The charge of sexual exploitation of a child is punishable by a mandatory minimum sentence of 15 years in prison and a maximum penalty of 30 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Sentencing is scheduled for Nov. 7, 2014.

Grennier pleaded guilty before Judge Wolfson to a separate charge of the sexual exploitation of a minor on Dec. 16, 2013, and is scheduled to be sentenced on Aug. 20, 2014.

U.S. Attorney Fishman credited special agents of the FBI’s Child Exploitation Task Force, under the direction of Special Agent in Charge Aaron T. Ford, for the investigation leading to today’s plea. Fishman also thanked the South Plainfield Borough Police Department, under the direction of Chief of Police James Parker, and the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office, under the direction of Prosecutor Andrew Carey, for their assistance with the investigation.

Dornick worked as a writer and photographer for the South Plainfield Observer, where she wrote extensively on education and local-government issues. In addition, she penned a column under the pseudonym “Busy Busy Mom.”  

South Plainfield Police Chief James Parker thanked the FBI, the South Plainfield Detective Bureau and the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office for their investigative work and for bringing this case to its conclusion.
