New Jersey Prison Guard Accused Of Flashing His Badge To Have Free Sex With Prostitutes

By David Madden

TRENTON, N.J. (CBS) – A New Jersey state prison guard is charged in connection with sexual assaults on four women between May 2011 and July 2012. Investigators allege he posed as a police officer in the assaults.

Juan Stevens, 50, of Burlington Township faces a 25 count indictment from a state grand jury. He’s also suspended without pay from his job as a guard at the Trenton State Prison while this case plays out.

“Mr. Stevens used his badge to coerce prostitutes into having sex with him and getting away with it without paying them anything,” Elie Honig, Director of the State Division of Criminal Justice, said.

In each case, it’s alleged Stevens called escort services, met the women at motels in Maple Shade, Mansfield and Westampton Townships, flashed his prison badge, called himself a cop and said he was part of a prostitution sting. He then supposedly suggested nothing would happen to the women, if they had sex with him.
