A former school superintendent and principal recently charged as a "peeping Tom" was arrested Thursday on new charges in connection with a 2014 sexual assault in Woodbridge.

Danny McEaddy, 39, of the Sicklerville section of Winslow, was charged with first-degree aggravated sexual assault for allegedly forcing his way into the apartment of a woman in the Keasby section of Woodbridge on Sept. 21, 2014.

The woman, who reported the crime to the police right away, said she did not the rapist, Middlesex County Prosecutor Yvonne Ciccione said.

Prosecutors did not publicly reveal this week how they tied McEaddy to the crime in Woodbridge.

In addition to rape, McEaddy was charged with first-degree kidnapping, second-degree burglary, third-degree aggravated criminal sexual contact, third-degree criminal restraint, and third-degree aggravated assault.

Charged after peering into windows of several homes

McEaddy was arrested last year on separate charges.

An investigation by Winslow police into incidents of a man peering into the windows of homes led to McEaddy's arrest in August. In one of the incidents, McEaddy was accused of entering a home and tried forcing a woman into a bedroom.

McEaddy was linked by Winslow police to the previous incidents and charged with second-degree burglary, and three counts of fourth-degree invasion of privacy.

Officials confirmed McEaddy was the principal of Hillcrest Elementary School in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania in 2020. In a video introducing himself to the school, he said he was a husband and father with 15 years of experience as an educator.

After a year, he became principal at the Freedom Charter School in Camden through the 2022 school year.

McEaddy was denied release during a detention hearing in October but his attorney told ABC 6 Action News at the time he would appeal.

Weird things NJ taxes - and some they don't

In general, New Jersey assesses a 6.625% Sales Tax on sales of most tangible personal property, specified digital products, and certain services unless specifically exempt under New Jersey law.
However, the way the sales tax is applied in New Jersey sometimes just doesn't make sense.
New Jersey puts out an itemized list for retailers that spells out what is, and what is not, taxed. 
Perhaps because this is New Jersey, there are some bizarre and seemingly contradictory listings.
