Man charged in sexual assault released on his own recognizance under NJ Bail Reform
Pallisades Park, NJ – According to the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office press release, Min Sung Jeon was charged with 2 counts of 2nd degree sexual assault – only later to be released and FREE TO GO thanks to NJ Bail Reform after the Arnold Foundation’s “Pretrial Risk Assessment” tool determined he was not a danger to the community or a flight risk and therefore should not be subject to any accountable release – just a “promise” to appear.
The release is yet another example of the thousands of unaccountable and FREE TO GO pretrial releases of those criminally charged under the NJ Bail Reform Act.
Acting Bergen County Prosecutor Dennis Calo announced the arrest of MIN SUNG JEON (DOB: 07/27/1975; single; and self-employed) of 535A Second Street, Palisades Park, NJ, on charges of Sexual Assault.
