Skating rink owner accused of sexual contact with child

Police say 46-year-old Jon J. Carlo, owner of the Franklin Skating Center in Franklinville, New Jersey has been charged with criminal sexual contact with a child under the age of thirteen.

He is accused of showing adult pornography to a juvenile and endangering the welfare of a child stemming from acts that allegedly occurred between November 2014 and July 2015.

Carlo turned himself in on Monday at the Gloucester County Prosecutor's Office.

The Major Crimes Unit conducted a four-week investigation of the allegations that the child had been shown pornography on a laptop computer at the skating rink on Delsea Drive.

Search warrants were then issued at Carlo's business and residence.

Carlo is incarcerated in default of $200,000 bail.

He is charged with second-degree sexual assault, third-degree endangering and third-degree invasion of privacy.

According to the complaint, an invasion of privacy occurred when Carlo made a video recording when a child's "intimate parts were exposed without (the child's) consent and under the circumstances in which a reasonable person would not expect to be observed."

A court-approved sex offense restraining order was then issued, prohibiting Carlo from unsupervised contact with any minors.

Anyone with information about Carlo videotaping juveniles, particularly at his Franklinville skating center, is asked to call (856) 384-5625.
