Thursday, October 09, 2014
Daniel Berger, 28, admitted that he befriended a 13-year-old female on the Internet and subsequently transported her from Portsmouth to his residence in Haskell, New Jersey, on July 24, 2013.
Berger, who pled guilty on July 18, 2014, was also ordered by U.S. District Court Judge Mary M. Lisi to serve 15 years of supervised release upon completion of his prison term, to register as a sex offender and to pay restitution to the victim’s family in the amount of $909.39, for expenses incurred by the family as a result of this crime.
Local, state and federal law enforcement officials from Rhode Island and New Jersey worked collaboratively to locate the victim and arrest Berger.
