YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: An Englewood woman put a 5-year-old boy’s penis in her mouth, then assaulted a Bergen County sheriff’s corrections officer after she was jailed, an indictment returned by a grand jury in Hackensack today reveals.

Roxanne Hewitt, 34, has remained held on $200,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail since her arrest on April 23.

“My client denies any wrongdoing and denies that the alleged incident occurred,” defense attorney Ron Bar-Nadav told CLIFFVIEW PILOT .

Authorities at the time accused her of “engaging in inappropriate sexual activity” with the boy without elaborating.

The boy was taken to Hackensack University Medical Center, then “described to [detectives] them in detail the sexual acts Hewitt had engaged him in the day before,” Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli said at the time.

The five-count indictment charges her with two first-degree counts of aggravated sexual assault involving oral sex, one of sexual assault — for allegedly touching the boy’s penis — and one of impairing or debauching the morals of a minor.

It also charges her with one count of assaulting the sheriff’s corrections officer in the performance of his duties on Aug. 1.
