A Monroe, New Jersey dentist has been arrested on four charges of sexual assault, according to NJ.com. An investigation by the Monroe Police Department found evidence that 47-year-old Dr. Richard Goldberg had inappropriately touched at least 3 female employees, including one who was only 17 years old at the time.
Goldberg has been charged with 3 counts of criminal sexual contact and 1 count of endangering the welfare of a child, authorities say. In private practice out of Monroe Township, Dr. Goldberg, a resident of Marlboro, offered a full range of dental services from his clinic on Spotswood Englishtown Road, including dental implants and cosmetic procedures.
