Police Arrest Monroe Township Dentist For Sex Crime Allegations

On Monday, August 20, police in Middlesex County arrested a dentist after three female employees accused him of sexual misconduct. 47-year-old Dr. Richard Goldberg has been charged with three counts of criminal sexual contact and endangering the welfare of a child. One of the accusers was just 17 years old at the time of the alleged incident.

The Monroe Police Department conducted an investigation into the claims against the dentist and found that he inappropriately touched three female employees at his office on Spotswood Englishtown Road in Monroe.

These incidents allegedly took place between July 2016 and August 2018.

Legal Recourse For Victims of Workplace Sexual Assault & Harassment

Attorney contributor Guy D'Andrea is an experienced sexual assault victims lawyer. Here are some of his thoughts on how filing a sexual assault lawsuit can help victims in the workplace:

Sexual harassment in the workplace is a nationwide problem. In some cases, sexual harassment becomes more severe and crosses the line into sexual assault. If you’ve been sexually harassed or assaulted in the workplace, you should know that both the criminal justice system and civil court system are available to help you find justice.

For cases of sexual assault, your first step should be reporting the crime to the authorities. The police will handle the criminal investigation of your claim, including possibly arresting and prosecuting the suspect.

However, sometimes the criminal justice system fails to make an arrest or yield a conviction for a sexual crime. Even when convictions are made, the criminal justice system often does little to directly compensate the victims of these crimes. This is why many victims turn to sexual assault lawyers who can help victims hold accountable third parties who enabled abuse through negligence and recover financial compensation for damages related to the assault. For example, an employer who failed to properly respond to complaints of sexual misconduct could potentially be held liable if a sexual assault victim files a lawsuit.

If you’re the survivor of sexual assault and are curious about your legal options, we advise discussing your case with an experienced sexual assault survivors lawyer.
