FORMER WARMINSTER OFFICER ORDERED TO STAND TRIAL FOR SEXUAL ASSAULT OF FIVE TEENS

James Carey

Bucks County prosecutors presented sufficient evidence Monday to send all charges against former Warminster Township police officer James Carey, accused of sexually assaulting five teen boys, to the Court of Common Pleas. 

Carey, 53, of Cape May Court House in New Jersey, committed the acts while working as a DA.R.E. officer and running a program for troubled youth at the township’s recreation center more than two decades ago. 

During a 4-hour preliminary hearing on Monday, Magisterial District Judge Daniel J. Finello Jr., heard testimony from seven witnesses, including four of the victims and two Bucks County detectives, and ruled a prima facie case was established. Carey has a formal arraignment scheduled for Aug. 13. 

“Now that we’ve successfully gotten the charges against Carey held for trial, his victims are one step closer to getting the justice they deserve," District Attorney Matt Weintraub said. "And they will get justice.”
