New Jersey Police Officer Charged With Raping 2nd Underage Victim

New Jersey – The Trenton police officer charged last week with repeatedly sexually assaulting a minor has been charged with a second, similar set of charges for another victim, the Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office said.

William L. Sanchez-Monllor, 36, of Burlington Township, is charged with six counts of first-degree aggravated sexual Assault and one count of endangering the welfare of a child.

As with the first set of allegations, the prosecutor’s office did not indicate the age or gender of the minor victim, or the nature of any relationship the victim may have had with Sanchez-Monllor.

The details of the assaults were again sealed by a state Superior Court judge, the office said.

The office did say, as with the prior victim, the alleged abuse occurred on multiple occasions in Burlington County. Sanchez-Monllor lives on Neck Road in Burlington Township.

Last week, the office charged Sanchez-Monllor with two counts of first-degree aggravated sexual assault, two counts of second-degree sexual assault and an endangering charge.

With that victim, court documents showed that the abuse started as early as 2014.

Sanchez-Monllor has been a Trenton officer since 2010 and has worked as a detective. His base salary is currently about $102,000 annually, state records show.

He was taken into custody last Tuesday at the Burlington Township Police Department, and remained jailed Monday awaiting a detention hearing in Superior Court.

His exact status with the Trenton Police Department was unclear Monday.

Prosecutor’s Det. Tony Luyber and Burlington Township Det. Ruben Ortiz-Cruz are the lead investigators.
