Carlos Rivera Arrested for Sex Crimes

A man accused of being a sexual predator by Pennsylvania authorities was arrested in Jersey City last week in a joint operation between several law enforcement agencies, the Hudson County's Sheriff's Office said.

Carlos Taino Rivera, 29, Hummelstown, Pa., was wanted in Duaphin County in Pennsylvania on charges of statutory sexual contact, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and unlawful contact with a minor, said Hudson County Sheriff Juan M. Perez.

Hudson County Sheriff's Office detectives Oliver King and Javier Martinez and members of the U.S. Marshal's New York/New Jersey Regional Fugitive Task Force arrested Rivera early Tuesday morning at the Lincoln Street home of a woman he was visiting, officials said.

Other agencies involved with the arrest were the Hudson County Prosecutor's Office, New Jersey State Police and Bergen County Sheriff's Office.

Perez commended the teamwork between the agencies, saying that in bringing fugitives to justice they were "protecting the people of Hudson County."
