A registered sex offender in New Jersey is accused of sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl during a driving lesson.
Jason Walsh, 42, of Bayville, faces charges that include sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child, according to the Ocean County Prosecutor's Office.
Walsh is required to wear a GPS device due to Megan's Law requirements. The tracking device's records showed he was at the location of the reported incident at the time and date the girl told authorities that the assault occurred, prosecutors said.
Officials did not release further details about the incident.
New Jersey's sex-offender registry says Walsh was convicted of aggravated sexual assault and used a job as a babysitter to gain access to victims between 1982 and 1988.
In May 2013, the tier-three sex offender was indicted in Ocean County on charges of trying to infiltrate a youth organization, a violation of the state's sex-offender statutes. Prosecutors said at the time that Walsh participated in and tried to obtain a position on the parent board of the Toms River High School East marching band "pit crew."
Walsh pleaded guilty in that case in June, according to court records.
He is being held on the current charges at the Ocean County jail with bail set at $150,000.
