Camp Counselor In NJ Charged With Sexual Assault

WEST MILFORD, NJ (AP) – Authorities have charged a female camp counselor from Rhode Island with sexually assaulting two teenage boys in New Jersey.

The Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office says 23-year-old Jessica Fenton had sex with the 16- and 17-year-old in her tent.

The boys, who are from Orange, N.J., were on a camping trip Aug. 7 and 8 at the Wildcat Mountain Wilderness Center in Wawayanda State Park.

Authorities told The Record newspaper one of the boys had confided in an adult who had been on the trip.

Police arrested the Charlestown, R.I., resident on two counts of second-degree sexual assault in West Milford, where she has a temporary residence.

It was not immediately clear whether Fenton has retained an attorney.

    Despite the apparently “WOO HOO GOT GET ‘EM” attitude of most of the responders here, statutory rape is still a crime in New Jersey, regardless of the combination of persons involved. If one of them is under 18 and the other is over 18, the older person has broken the law.

    I don’t see a problem here. When I was 16 my first was 42………………. she made me grow up very quickly and I retain very fond memories of her.

    Did the teenagers lie about their age?

    what the hell this does not happen to me?

  11. tom says:

    How does the state define sexual assault when we know these boys willingly participated in the act?? In my mind assault is some violent or unwanted intrusion of privacy or bodily harm. Come on, we know these guys enjoyed every minute or perhaps only a few seconds and wanted to brag about it.

  12. franky nodots says:

    The campers should have been charged extra for the night time entertainment. This is BS. I mean, really. What 16 or 17 year old would not want to bang their 23 year old camp counselor???
