NEW BRUNSWICK — A Rutgers University student has pleaded guilty to charges in which he admitted having sexual contact with a student who was asleep in a Piscataway dormitory two years ago, Middlesex County Prosecutor Bruce J. Kaplan announced today.
Minjin Oh, 20, of Bridgewater pleaded guilty on April 23, to aggravated criminal sexual contact and invasion of privacy, both third degree offenses.
The guilty pleas were entered during a hearing in New Brunswick before Superior Court Judge Joseph Paone, who said he will sentence the defendant on Aug. 23.
Under the terms of a plea agreement reached by Middlesex County Deputy First Assistant Prosecutor Christie L. Bevacqua and Oh’s attorney, Steven Altman, the defendant will be sentenced to serve up to 364 days in the Middlesex County Adult Correction Center in North Brunswick.
In addition, he will be placed on parole supervision for life and will be required to register with police as a sex offender under Megan’s Law.
During a hearing before Paone, the defendant admitted improperly touching the sleeping male student and videotaping the act on April 6, 2010, at a Rutgers dormitory in Piscataway.
Investigator Michael Daniewicz of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office began an investigation after the victim reported the incident to the Rutgers University Police Department on April 10, 2010.
Oh was arrested and charged on April 13, 2010. He continues to attend classes at Rutgers, but moved from the dorm following the arrest, according to authorities. He remains free on bail pending sentencing.
