OCEAN COUNTY – An Eatontown man, who sexually abused his victim in several municipalities, was convicted of several related counts.

The jury returned guilty verdicts against Christopher Barclay, 40, on March 8. He was found guilty of first-degree aggravated sexual assault, second-degree sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child for incidents in Toms River between 2005 and 2006. He was charged and convicted for the same for incidents happening in Berkeley Township between 2006 and 2010, and Woodbridge Township from 2010 to 2012.

Barclay must serve at least 25 years for his first-degree convictions before he can considered for parole. He is facing 5-10 years, subject to the “No Early Release Act” on each sexual assault conviction, and 5-10 for each endangering the welfare of a child conviction.

Should he be released after this, he is subject to lifetime parole under Meghan’s Law.
