Lurid testimony opens trial of suspended Moorestown police officer
By Jan Hefler

Inquirer Staff Writer


Testimony began Thursday in the trial of a Moorestown police officer and his former girlfriend, who are accused of sexually assaulting three juvenile girls in his home over eight years, in one case allegedly videotaping their actions.

Robert Melia Jr., 42, who was suspended from his patrol job after his arrest in April 2008, sat in Superior Court in Mount Holly and scribbled continuously on a notepad as Assistant Burlington County Prosecutor Kevin Morgan gave sordid details of how Melia allegedly videotaped a blindfolded and bound girl being repeatedly violated with objects.

"Perhaps the most crucial piece of evidence was the video," Morgan told the jury, adding that the girl appeared to have been drugged.

Melia's girlfriend, Heather Lewis, whom the prosecution identified as the adult woman on the tape, is accused of assaulting the minor and forcing her to be her sexual partner.

Much much more at the link including two pictures AND you need to make sure that your breakfast is thoroughly digested:
What you also may need to know is that Moorestown, NJ is one of the most desirable communities in which to live in the USA. Over the years, it has been named many times in the top five by several organization who I suppose have the 'authority' to do so (!) and at least once, the MOST desirable all-around place. Sheesh.
