NJ Child Sex Predator Pleads Guilty to Sex Assaults on 6-year-old in Phillipsburg
A Phillipsburg man has admitted to sexually assaulting a young girl over a three year-span.
Lawrence Kolmer, 45, pleaded guilty on Tuesday to sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child, Warren County Prosecutor James Pfeiffer said.
In April, the child reported to police that Kolmer had repeatedly sexually assaulted her from the time that the victim was 6 through 8 years old.
All of the sex attacks happened between 2018 and 2021 at Kolmer's residence, Pfeiffer said.
The state would recommend that Kolmer serve a total of 17 years in prison — 10 years for the sex assault conviction and seven for the child endangerment, in sentences to run back-to-back.
He would remain in Warren County jail until his sentencing, set for Dec. 16.
