ONLY ON CVP: Two brothers accused of sexually assaulting a Bergenfield girl over three years beginning when they were juveniles and she was 8 years old will be tried as adults.
Jason Negron, now of Dumont, and his brother, Jonathan Negron of the Bronx, were teenagers from March 1998 through October 2001, when prosecutors said the assaults occurred in an acquaintance’s house.
Defense attorney Adamo Ferreira countered that his client, Jason Negron, didn’t have the opportunity to commit such crimes because he lived with his mother and attended school in the Bronx.
Both sides were still reviewing evidence and statements from either side before discussing a possible plea bargain.
Each man is charged with three first-degree charges of aggravated sexual assault for both penile and digital penetration, as well as oral sex on the girl.
They’re also charged with two second-degree counts of aggravated sexual assault for having her perform oral sex on them and masturbating in her presence, as well as impairing or debauching the morals of a minor.
Each remains free on $100,000 bail.
