Episcopal vicar, convicted in 1998 of molesting kids, sues prison
 

Issue Detail:

 
In a suit filed on October 18, 2010, Charles Mitzenius, a former vicar of St. Mark's Episcopal Church in Keansburg, claimed that officials of the Adult Diagnostic and Treatment Center in Avenel refused him medical treatment after he was beaten by another inmate in 2008. He also claimed that a prison psychologist encouraged other inmates to call him a "pedophile priest" and hurl other insults at him during group therapy sessions. See Mitzenius v. New Jersey Department of Corrections, et al, Middlesex County Superior Court, Docket No. L-7749-10. Mitzenius' lawsuit is on-line here. He seeks unspecified damages and attorney fees. He is being represented in the suit by Charles H. Landesman of Kearny. According to a April 14, 2000 Star Ledger article, Mitzenius was convicted in 1998 on eight counts of aggravated sexual assault, endangering the welfare of a child and sexual contact and was sentenced to 24-years in prison with an eight-year period of parole ineligibility. His youngest victim was a twelve year old boy. Mitzenius is presently 72 years old. John Paff Somerset, New Jersey
