The arrest is the result of an investigation conducted by members of the Bergen County Prosecutor's Office Special Victims Unit under the direction of Chief Steven CUCCINIELLO and the Cliffside Park Police Department under the direction of Chief Donald KEANE.
On June 7, 2013, members of the Bergen County Prosecutor's Office Special Victims Unit and the Cliffside Park Police Department arrested Luan SILVA after learning that he engaged in inappropriate sexual activity with an eleven year old girl. The allegations of sexual abuse were originally reported by the victim to school authorities who then contacted the Division of Child Protection and Permanency (DCPP), formally DYFS, who in turned notified law enforcement authorities. The alleged incidents of sexual abuse are reported to have occurred over a period of several years in the victim’s Cliffside Park residence.
Luan SILVA was charged with one (1) count of Aggravated Sexual Assault – 1st degree crime and one (1) count of Endangering the Welfare of a Child – 2nd degree crime.
Bail for Luan SILVA was set by Judge Frances McGrogan, J.S.C. at $400,000.00-no 10% option and no contact with the victim. Mr. Silva was subsequently remanded to the Bergen County Jail in lieu of bail.
Prosecutor Molinelli states that these charges are merely accusations and that the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
