A Toms River man has been charged with the sexual abuse of four children that occurred over a course of years, police said Wednesday.

Daniel Roy Plummer, 34, of Norma Place, is charged with three counts of aggravated sexual assault and four counts of endangering the welfare of a child.

Toms River Police spokesman Ralph Stocco said authorities initially received information that Plummer may have committed the offense of endangering the welfare of a child. As the investigation got underway, detectives from the police department and the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office discovered that Plummer had been, “over a multitude of years,” having inappropriate sexual encounters with four juveniles.


All of the children were known to the suspect, Stocco said. In addition to his arrest, search warrants were executed at his home and a storage unit in Toms River where several computers and a cellular phone were seized.

Plummer was arrested Tuesday. Superior Court Judge Wendel E. Daniels set Plummer’s bail at $250,000 cash. Plummer remains lodged in the Ocean County Jail in lieu of bail.

The ages of the children were not released by police, Stocco said, because they could inadvertently reveal the identities of the victims.

    Among the various news releases from the prosecutors office there seems to be a large number of these incidents of adults taking sexual advantage of multiple children. Why do the defendants know all the victims? Is this a product of mothers dating or allowing men to move into their homes? The reports just give the basics. Maybe it is time to warn the public of why and how these crimes are committed.

    • ugh

      In this case because I know the man that was arrested..this had NOTHING to do with his mother. This man is just fucked up. They haven’t come up with a reason for child predators, they haven’t found a link yet. Every person is different. It’s easier to prey on kids you know and get them not to talk, rather than a stranger who will say something. Get your facts straight before you make idiotic comments.

        ugh I was not talking about his mother. My question was about the safety of women with children allowing their boyfriends access to their children.
