MARLBORO — Seven years after he allegedly engaged in sexual acts with a 12-year-old girl, the former police chief of Marlboro has yet to make an appearance in court, according to a report on Marlboro Patch.
In July 2009, Robert Holmes was indicted on seven counts of aggravated sexual assault after the county's investigation found he allegedly engaged in sexual acts with the girl between 2005 and 2007.
At the time, prosecutors said Holmes had provided the girl with alcohol and assaulted her at his home.The girl was between the ages of 12 and 14 at the time.
The website quoted a representative from the Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office as saying the case was unresolved and "there is nothing new to report."
Holmes retired less than a year before the indictment was handed up by a Monmouth County grand jury. He is currently collecting a $106,010 per year pension. His final salary for the purposes of calculating his pension was $150,023.
