A Stillwater man that was charged with sexually assaulting a teen in 2019 was released from jail. According to the New Jersey Herald, a judge released Keith Whitehead Jr. "because there were no physical injuries, no weapons used and said he believed there were means to guarantee the safety of the community."
Whitehead was accused of sexually assaulting a child between the ages of 13 and 16 at a party in July of last year. Police allegedly said DNA evidence linked him to the assault but Whitehead's attorney says the DNA was taken off of shorts that Whitehead let the minor to borrow during the party because she was staying the night.
As part of his release Whitehead reportedly has to stay inside his home between 7:30pm and 7:30am. He also can't have contact with the victim or her family, must keep working at his job in Newton and continue to pay child support for his two kids. Additionally the victim was granted a restraining order.
