Jury convicts man for attempt to lure minor

Date: January 24, 2008

LONG BRANCH - A Nutley man was convicted last week on attempted sexual assault charges for trying to engage in a sexual act with someone he thought was a 14-year-old girl in Long Branch.

On Jan. 15, a Monmouth County jury convicted Jonathan Nazzaretto, 30, of second degree attempted sexual assault, second degree luring or enticing a child, and third-degree attempted endangering the welfare of a child, according to a press release from the Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office.

Before Nazzaretto can be sentenced, state Superior Court Judge Paul F. Chaiet will review a diagnostic evaluation that will advise him whether the accused is a repetitive and compulsive sex offender, according to the release.

If he is found to be a repetitive and compulsive sex offender, Nazzaretto will serve his sentence at the Adult Diagnostic and Treatment Center in the Avenel section of Woodbridge, according to the release.

Otherwise, Nazzaretto will serve his sentence in a state prison facility determined by the Department of Corrections, according to the Prosecutor's Office.
