Policeman Faces Over 120 Charges Of Sexual Abuse After Assaulting Young Boys For 20 Years

 A former police officer has been accused of sexually assaulting five boys over a 20 year period during his career as a cop.

James Carey, 52, faces more than 122 charges relating to the sexual assault of at least five underage boys, according to the Bucks County District Attorney’s office. The alleged abuse happened between 1989 and 2009 in the Warminster Township area of Pennsylvania where he served as a D.A.R.E officer in a school.

He was initially arrested on April 7 following accused of sexually assaulting four boys, but days after his arrest, a fifth alleged victim came forward to police to say he too had been abused by Carey.

According to police, the boy was 13 when he was sexually abused by Carey, who served as a cop for the Warminster Township Police Department.

According to the attorney's office, Carey, of Cape May Court House in New Jersey, allegedly ‘fondled’ the boy during a pat-down search outside the Warminster Recreation Center.

The press release said that Carey found marijuana during the search, which he confiscated, and then told the boy they would discuss the matter at a later time.

The following week Carey apparently gave the boy a ride home in his patrol car and told him he could have had him arrested, taken out of school, and sent to a detention center for possessing marijuana, according to a criminal complaint.

Carey said the arrest could follow him his entire life, the boy told the police but offered to work something out instead, it’s claimed. 

Carey proceeded to drive the boy home and park in the driveway, according to cops, who say the boy told them he was terrified Carey could destroy his life.

According to the complaint, when parked outside the boy’s home, Carey allegedly performed oral sex on the boy.

On Wednesday Carey was charged with involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, statutory sexual assault, indecent assault, endangering the welfare of a child, unlawful contact with a minor, corruption of minors, and official oppression on May 26.

He appeared at an arraignment hearing on the new charges on Tuesday and is being held on a $250,000 bail.

Before the new charges were filed on May 26, Carey was already facing a total of 122 other charges relating to the sexual assaults of four boys.

Carey was a police officer for Warminster Township from 1989 to 2009, and previously and

Prosecutors have gathered 80 pages worth of evidence and testimonies from victims, parents, and numerous other witnesses that alleges Carey used his position as a uniformed officer to ‘gain unique access to children under color of authority and law’.

‘Carey ingratiated himself into the lives of minor children, particularly those who were already facing challenges in their lives, the file said.

The document added: ‘He used his position and authority to groom, not only the children but their adult caregivers.

‘The grooming tactics he used were pervasive, manipulative and calculated such that he not only lowered the minor’s guard but also attempted to provide an assurance that his crimes would go unreported and if reported, not believed.’

In announcing the arrest on April 7, District Attorney, Matt Weintraub, described Carey as ‘a veritable wolf in sheep’s clothing, walking among us.

The Bucks County District Attorney’s Office has added that it ‘strongly believes there are more victims in this case and has appealed to anyone who might have more information to come forward.
