No plea deal for Hackensack man accused of raping girl, 10, before sex-party video

ONLY ON CVP: Now that prosecutors have refused to offer him a plea deal, a Hackensack man will be tried early next year on charges of sexually abusing a girl beginning when she was 10 and continuing for more than three years.

Authorities said they discovered the alleged abuse by Nicholas “Troy” Jackson ( above ) after arresting him and three of his friends following a June 2012 videotaped sex party with the girl, who was 15 at the time.

Jackson, 37, brought the group together, authorities said at the time. The other three all took plea deals for their roles in the incident, which prosecutors said Jackson didn’t attend.

The girl, who ran away from home a few days earlier, was four months shy of her 16th birthday, they said.

Detectives investigating the party then produced the new charges against Jackson. A grand jury indictment charges him with several counts of raping the girl and making her give him oral sex from 2006 to 2009.

Defense attorney Aaron Miller told Presiding Superior Court Judge Liliana DeAvila-Silebi this week that he needs more time to review evidence against his client that he received only last week.

Miller also said he wants to prepare to possibly counter a witness on child sex abuse whom an assistant county prosecutor intends to call.

“ I’m obviously going to have to look into getting my own expert for that,” he said.

Assistant Bergen County Prosecutor Dion Findley said Jackson was offered a seven-year prison term in exchange for a guilty plea in the sex party case but not this time.

Jackson remains free on $60,000 bail.
