James Carey, the former Warminster Township police officer who sexually assaulted five boys, was sentenced on Tuesday, March 21, 2023, to serve 24 ½ to 55 years in a state correctional institution.
Carey, 54, of Cape May Court House in New Jersey, committed the acts while working as a DA.R.E. officer, a volunteer firefighter and while running a program for troubled youth at the township’s recreation center more than two decades ago.
Carey entered an open no contest plea on Oct 27, 2022, to five counts each of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and corruption of minors, seven counts of indecent assault, two counts each of statutory rape and statutory sexual assault and one count of aggravated indecent assault.
Prior to sentencing President Judge Wallace H. Bateman Jr., heard impact statements from the five victims who courageously testified about the emotional trauma the disgraced officer inflicted on them.
