Man stalked daughter online, cops say Thursday December 27, 2007 A former Essex County resident has been charged in Sussex County with stalking his adult daughter by posing as someone else on the Internet, asking her to pose for nude photos, burglarizing her home and surreptitiously using her computer, authorities said today. The 50-year-old man, formerly of Verona, was charged in April in Sussex County with luring an adult, burglary and possession of prescription drugs, stalking and harassment, authorities said. The Star-Ledger is withholding the man's name to protect the identity of his daughter. From Sept. 14, 2006, through April 24, the alleged victim received several sexually explicit e-mails on her Myspace page from a person called "Jeff" and later "Mike," claiming she could earn $10,000 if she posed for nude photos, and that "Mike is watching her and sees her all the time," according to an affidavit. On April 25, she received from "Mike" a package on her doorstep containing a Playboy Lingerie magazine, a handwritten note and a picture of her and one of her girlfriends, the affidavit states. The sender purported to be a photographer for the magazine. The alleged victim told police the photo was an original on photo-stock paper that had been removed from her bedroom in Green Township and had not been posted online, and that she feared for her safety, the affidavit states. The father's attorney, Whitney Fisher, sought a lower bail and said he is a graduate of Livingston High School, and has parents and a brother in Verona with whom he can stay. Superior Court Judge Thomas Critchley set bail at $35,000 without a 10-percent option, and with the condition of having no contact with the victim.
