Former Warminster Township police officer James Carey was charged this week with sexually assaulting a fifth teenage boy while working as a DA.R.E. officer more than two decades ago.
Carey, 52, of Cape May Court House in New Jersey, was arrested on April 7 following a lengthy investigation by Bucks County Detectives and an inquiry by a Bucks County Investigating Grand Jury that found Carey sexually assaulted four boys between 1989 and 2009.
Days after a news conference to announce Carey’s arrest, Bucks County detectives interviewed a fifth person who said he was victimized by Carey.
The victim, identified in court records as MW13, said he was 13 when he was sexually assaulted by Carey.
He said he was with friends at the time and smoking marijuana outside the Warminster Recreation Center when Carey stopped them because of the marijuana smell. During a pat down search, Carey fondled the boy. Carey continued the search and found marijuana, which he confiscated. He told the boy they would discuss the matter at a later time.
