Police: Man films sex with ex's teenage daughter

Relationship allegedly lasted for more than a year

EASTON, Pa. - Authorities allege a 36-year-old Monroe County man had a sexual relationship with his ex-girlfriend’s teenager daughter and even recorded them having sex at an Easton hotel.

Police charged Jose M. Rosado with statutory sexual assault and related charges in connection with the relationship he allegedly carried on with a teenage girl for more than a year. District Judge Antonia Grifo arraigned the Coolbaugh Township resident Thursday afternoon, setting bail at $75,000.

Easton police initially responded in December to a report of a runaway juvenile, who had since come home. In the course of the interview with the girl and her mother, police learned that the teen had been having a sexual relationship with Rosado, the mother’s ex-boyfriend, according to court records.

Rosado was described in court records as the mother’s on-again, off-again boyfriend, who started a relationship with the daughter in May 2015 when she was 15 years old. The girl told investigators that Rosado took pictures and videos of some of the sexual encounters, using iPhones he had given her. The mother turned over an iPhone 4 and 5 to police.

The teen also alleged Rosado gave her mixed drinks and took her on one occasion to the Days Inn in Easton.

Authorities said they obtained a hotel receipt that showed Rosado rented a room in December along with video surveillance that allegedly shows him at the front desk with the girl. During an interview with police, Rosado denied being at the hotel before ending the conversation, according to records.

Police said search warrants issued on the iPhones turned up photos, videos and messages between Rosado and the teen that were sexual in nature.

Police charged Rosado with statutory sexual assault, aggravated indecent assault, child pornography and knowingly filming a child engaged in a sex act. He failed to post bail and was sent to Northampton County Prison to await a preliminary hearing tentatively scheduled for Feb. 27.
