Willingboro Woman Receives Prison for Explicit Contact with Minor

Burlington County

Burlington County Prosecutor Scott Coffina announced that a 26-year-old Willingboro Township woman has been sentenced to an aggregate of 15 years in New Jersey state prison for sexually assaulting a child in her home early last year.

According to Burlington County officials, under an agreement with the Prosecutor’s Office, Rachel Karngbaye pled guilty in September 2021 to Sexual Assault (Second Degree) and Endangering the Welfare of a Child (Third Degree).

Authorities said was sentenced today in Superior Court by the Hon. Philip E. Haines, J.S.C., to a 10-year term for the second-degree charge, for which she must serve 85% before becoming eligible for parole.

She received five years for the third-degree charge, said officials. The sentences will run consecutively.

County officials said Karngbaye will also be subject to the provisions of Megan’s Law and parole supervision for life upon release.

She will serve her sentence in a prison instead of the state’s facility that treats sex offenders because an evaluation determined that she is not willing to undergo treatment.

According to authorities, the investigation began in January 2021 after the victim’s mother contacted Willingboro police to report the assault.

Additional details are being withheld to protect the identity and well-being of the victim.
