New Jersey Attorney Arrested
Boston Police Commissioner Michael Cox made the announcement regarding Nilo’s arrest, sending shockwaves through the community.
The 35-year-old New Jersey attorney was taken into custody in Weehawken, New Jersey, and subsequently charged with three counts of aggravated rape, two counts of kidnapping, one count of assault with intent to rape, and one count of indecent assault and battery, according to law enforcement officials.
Nilo’s attorney stated that his client intends to plead not guilty and is eagerly awaiting his return to Massachusetts to fight the charges, as reported by CBS News.
The charges against the New Jersey attorney are related to four separate incidents that occurred between August 2007 and December 2008 in the Charlestown neighborhood of Boston, according to the police.
Boston’s FBI field office, represented by Special Agent Joseph Bonavolonta, referred to Nilo as an “accused serial rapist and kidnapper,” highlighting the severity of the alleged crimes, as reported by NBC News.
Authorities Investigate New Jersey Attorney
Furthermore, detectives in various states are currently investigating whether the New Jersey attorney could be linked to additional sexual assaults, suggesting the possibility of a larger pattern of criminal behavior.
This ongoing investigation demonstrates the importance of thoroughly examining any potential connections and ensuring justice for all victims involved.
The New Jersey attorney’s educational and professional background adds complexity to the case.
Reports indicate that he attended high school in Boston before moving to Wisconsin for college. After completing his studies, Nilo worked at a law firm in Boston, where he reviewed legal cases.
Subsequently, the New Jersey attorney pursued further education in law at a San Francisco-based institution before settling in New Jersey, where he most recently practiced as a cyber attorney.
Authorities employed advanced investigative techniques, including genetic genealogy analysis and the use of sexual assault evidence collection kits, to identify the New Jersey attorney and establish connections to the alleged incidents.
