×

HOBOKEN– Local teen Amir Goodwin, who was charged last year along with three juveniles in connection with an alleged sexual assault of a 17-year-old female student at Hoboken High School, will appear in court on Feb. 15, according to Law Office of Adrienne D. Edward P.C.
He was originally scheduled to appear this Monday, Jan. 29.
Goodwin, age 18, of Hoboken, was first charged on Nov. 30 with one count of endangering the welfare of a child, one count of criminal sexual contact, and one count of criminal restraint. Then, on Dec. 12, he was additionally charged with one count of aggravated criminal sexual contact, conspiracy to commit kidnapping, and conspiracy to commit aggravated sexual assault.
Investigators did not release the names of the other students allegedly involved, because they are under 18. A 17-year-old juvenile is charged with one count of aggravated sexual assault, aggravated criminal sexual contact, and kidnapping. The two 16-year-old juveniles were charged with one count each of conspiracy to commit aggravated sexual assault, conspiracy to commit kidnapping, and aggravated criminal sexual contact.
The four teens allegedly forced a 17-year-old girl into a room at the school, and allegedly forced her to perform a sex act during school hours. The incident was reportedly caught on school videotape and on a student’s cellphone.
