Civil suit alleges that Marlboro Recreation Department failed to supervise, protect children and attempted to cover up sexting incidents
Matthew Kleinstein, 20, of Marlboro Township, pleaded guilty to fourth degree Cyber Harassment on August 17, 2015 in Monmouth County Court. Kleinstein had also been charged with 3rd degree Endangering the Welfare of a Minor after he sent pictures of his genitals to four female campers, ages 11-13, via text message and SnapChat, during his employment as a Camp Counselor with the Marlboro Department of Recreation at Marlboro High School during the summer of 2014.
Kleinstein has applied for Pre-Trial Intervention (PTI). He is scheduled to be sentenced by Judge Ronald Lee Reisner on October 9th at 9 a.m, according to Charles Webster, spokesman for the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office. If accepted into the PTI program, Kleinstein will avoid serving jail time and have his criminal record expunged upon successfully completing the program.
A civil lawsuit filed by one of the victims and her guardian on September 18, 2015 alleges that Kleinstein’s father, Darrin Kleinstein, Vice Chairman of the Marlboro Recreation Advisory Committee, obstructed the investigation into his son’s actions by the Marlboro Recreation Department and the Marlboro Police Department. The suit alleges that the elder Kleinstein contended that the allegations were false and manufactured with the intent of harassing his son.Art Gallagher | Filed under: Jon Hornik, Marlboro, Monmouth County, Monmouth County Court, Monmouth County News, Monmouth County Prosecutor | Tags: Darrin Kleinstein, Judge Ronald Reisner, Lyne Gustman, Marlboro, Marlboro Mayor Jon Hornik, Marlboro Township, Marlboro Township Recreation Department, Matthew Kleinstein, Michelle Gropper, Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office, Pre-Trial Intervention, PTI, Robert Honecker, Sexting, SnapChat, Steven P.

The Christie Administration is warning consumers to look out for price gouging during the State of Emergency related to Hurricane Joaquin and the Nor’easter that is currently impacting New Jersey, and warning merchants and business who raise their prices more that 10% that they will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Hoffman. “We will not tolerate anyone taking advantage of the suffering of others.”admin | Filed under: Christie Administration, Monmouth County News | Tags: Christie Administration, Hurricane Joaquin, Price Gouging | No Comments »
