WOODBURY, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey man has been told to change where he picks his wife up from work at a nuclear power plant after he pleaded guilty to unwanted sexual contact of another employee.
Superior Court Judge Christine Allen Jackson on Friday ordered 56-year-old Michael Ford, of Hi-Nella, not to have contact with the victim and to pick up his wife at a different parking lot at the Salem nuclear power plant in southwest New Jersey.
Ford pleaded guilty to fourth-degree criminal sexual contact. He was sentenced to three years' probation and told to undergo a psychological evaluation.
The charge stemmed from an occasion when the woman drove Ford home on Interstate 295 from his then-job at the plant. The woman said that afterward she went into an emotional downward spiral.
