Award-Winning New Jersey Detective Charged for Raping 15-Year-Old

An award-winning New Jersey detective has been charged after he repeatedly sexually assaulted a 15-year-old, who has given birth to his baby, according to [__NJ.com__](http://www.nj.com/camden/index.ssf/2017/09/camden_cop_charged_with_assault_after_15-year-old.html#incart_2box_nj-homepage-featured).

Camden County Police Department detective Rafael Martinez Jr., 32, raped the teen  several times at his home between September 1, 2016 and August 18, 2017, according to her statements in an official criminal complaint issued in Gloucester Township.

According to a probable cause warrant for his arrest, Martinez admitted he was the father in mid-August and signed his name on the baby’s birth certificate the night the child was born.

Court-ordered DNA samples were taken from the baby, Martinez and the baby’s mother.

The samples were tested by the New Jersey State Police and later confirmed Martinez is indeed the father, authorities revealed.

The 15-year-old mother, known in court documents as E. L.,  also made statements to a Cooper University Hospital social worker claiming Martinez was the father.

“They both admitted to the (social worker) that Martinez is the father of E.L.’s child and he signed the birth certificate confirming such,” the affidavit says.

 Detective Martinez was arrested then suspended on September 12 without pay, according to county spokesman Dan Keashen.

He was released after a subsequent detention hearing.

As we like to point out at PINAC, Martinez is one of many award-winners and received a number of honors during his career, including a  Meritorious Service award in July 2013 as well as an Officer of the Week award for a string of gun and drug arrests in November 2013.

During their announcement of Martinez’s November award, the Camden County Police Department described Martinez as “a highly motivated officer with a positive attitude who truly loves his job.”

Martinez was also awarded in March 2015 for his performance working with the U.S. Marshalls Regional Fugitive Task Force.

He has been charged with sexual assault of a minor between the ages of 13 and 16, and endangering the welfare of a child through sexual contact.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
