Fairview police arrested a North Bergen man who is accused of sexually abusing an eight-year-old girl.

An investigation by the Fairview Police Department and the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office’s Special Victims Unit revealed that 32-year-old Abraham Anibol Chumil had engaged in “inappropriate sexual conduct” with the young girl.

According to authorities, Mr. Chumil was a close acquaintance of the victim’s family.

Mr. Chumil was taken into custody and charged with attempted sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child.

In New Jersey, sexual assault is codified by N.J.S.A. 2C:14-2b and N.J.S.A. 2C:14-2c. As set forth by the statutes, sexual assault is a second degree crime. If Mr. Chumil is convicted of second degree sexual assault, he could be sentenced to up to ten (10) years in New Jersey State Prison. And, because the No Early Release Act (NERA) applies to sexual assault convictions, Mr. Chumil would be required to serve at least 85% of his sentence before becoming eligible for parole. Additionally, after being released from prison, Mr. Chumil would be subject to Megan’s Law Registration requirements.

Mr. Chumil was being held at the Bergen County Jail in lieu of $200,000.00 bail. He has been ordered to have no contact with the alleged victim or her family.
