A 47-year-old New Jersey man allegedly forced two 18-year-old women into prostitution, authorities said.

Milton Valentine, of Elizabeth, is charged with 10 counts of first-degree human trafficking, sexual assault and promoting prostitution, the Union County Prosecutor’s Office said in a statement Wednesday.

Valentine ordered the 18-year-olds to have sex with paying customers at hotels and give him the money they collected, authorities said. The hotels were in Elizabeth and Sayreville.

He used intimidation and threats to control the women, according to officials.

Valentine’s arrest Tuesday in Elizabeth followed a three-month investigation. The investigation began after a tip was called into a hotline. He was taken into custody and is due in court Wednesday afternoon. Full Story

 

In New Jersey, the legal term for rape is sexual assault, and the term sexual assault can cover a range of kinds of sexual contact, not all of which are necessarily forceful. The question of whether a sexual assault has occurred can become particularly complicated when the sexual contact is not forced and involves an 18-year-old and a person who is between 13 and 16 years old.

The age of consent in New Jersey is 16. The law states that, if you are four years older than the person with whom you have sexual contact, and that person is 13, 14 or 15, then you can be charged with sexual assault. In other words, a 17-year-old and a 14-year-old may legally have sexual contact, but an 18-year-old who has sexual contact with a 14-year-old may be charged with sexual assault. In other states, this kind of charge is called statutory rape.

An 18-year-old in Mercer County is currently facing this situation after allegedly having sexual contact with a 14-year-old girl. Prosecutors say the young man and the girl engaged in sexual activity in the back seat of a vehicle, and the man’s attorney has stated that the sexual contact was not forced. Full Story
