Man may face charges of violent crime in New Jersey

A father convicted of playing a role in his son's death is also the father of another girl found dead. The body of the toddler was located in a suitcase in New Jersey. The man was apprehended in Puerto Rico and will be extradited to the state where he faces charges of desecration of a body. Officials believe that charges of violent crime are likely to follow. 

In 2004, the man's son was found dead in a bathtub. He served one year in jail for his role in the drowning after he pleaded guilty to misdemeanor child neglect. The Medical Examiner's office ruled the drowning death of the 8-month-old child accidental. 

The individual also has a lengthy criminal record. A legal expert has reminded the public that the man's past cannot be used against him in the case of the deceased toddler. His guilt in the death of the toddler, if any, must be proved with specific evidence. After the toddler's body was recovered from the train tracks where it was dumped, investigators began their analysis of the forensic evidence. 

The man faces a minimum charge of desecration of a body, since he was one of the last known people to be with the child. Legal experts say more serious charges for the man are highly likely, and he may face a murder charge in the violent crime. Individuals in New Jersey who also face allegations of serious crimes may wish to defend against the charges. An experienced criminal defense attorney can help build a strong defense against allegations of crime and assist the individual in getting charges eliminated or reduced.
