NJ man gets prison for directing child sex acts

A New Jersey man who directed a woman to initiate sexual activities between a 13-year-old boy and an 8-year-old girl is going to prison.

A judge sentenced 30-year-old Gary Cramer of Bridgeton to 55 years behind bars. Cramer must serve at least 38 years before he’ll be eligible for parole.

Cramer was convicted of aggravated sexual assault, conspiracy and child endangerment.

Prosecutors say Cramer also directed the woman to have sex with the boy while he listened. The woman also had the girl perform oral sex on the boy so she could send Cramer a cellphone photo of the act.

The woman, 24-year-old Rachel Baker of Winslow Township, pleaded guilty in 2012 to aggravated sexual assault and is serving a 10-year sentence.

The pair had met online.
