TO: ALL NEWS MEDIA
FROM: PROSECUTOR JOHN L. MOLINELLI

Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli announced the arrest of VICTOR SCOTT (DOB: 01/01/1954) of 7268 Cedarcrest Boulevard, Lakeland, Florida on charges of Aggravated Sexual Assault, Sexual Assault and Endangering the Welfare of a Child. The arrest is the result of an investigation conducted by members of the Bergen County Prosecutor's Office Special Victims Unit under the direction of Chief Carmen MARTINO and the Englewood Police Department under the direction of Chief Lawrence SUFFERN.

On March 2, 2015, members of the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office and the Englewood Police Department, with the assistance of the Polk County Sheriff’s Department, arrested Victor SCOTT after learning that he engaged in inappropriate sexual activity on numerous occasions with a fifteen (15) year old female acquaintance. The victim was between the ages of nine (9) and eleven (11) years old when the inappropriate sexual activity occurred but only recently disclosed to law enforcement authorities what had taken place. The victim’s father recently discovered Internet communications between the victim and Mr. Scott which led him to believe that inappropriate sexual activity had taken place in the past. He then contacted the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Special Victims Unit and arrangements were made for the victim to be interviewed by detectives from the Special Victims Unit and the Englewood Police Department at the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office in Paramus. During that interview, the victim provided specific details regarding what had occurred with Mr. SCOTT. During the ensuing investigation, it was also learned that Mr. Scott had possibly moved to a location in Lakeland, Florida. Detectives from the Prosecutor’s Office and the Englewood Police Department contacted the Polk County Sheriff’s Department to confirm that Mr. Scott now resided in Lakeland, and with the assistance of that agency arrested Mr. SCOTT.

Victor SCOTT was charged with one (1) count each of Aggravated Sexual Assault, Sexual Assault and Endangering the Welfare of a Child. Bail for Mr. SCOTT will be set at a later date. Mr. SCOTT was remanded to the Polk County Jail pending an extradition hearing.

Prosecutor Molinelli states that these charges are merely accusations and that the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt and would also like to thank the Englewood Police Department and the Polk County Sheriff’s Department for their assistance in this investigation.
