Madison, NJ Detective James N. Haspel, of Chatham, was arrested by state police on his way to work Tuesday and charged with second-degree official misconduct, attempting to endanger the welfare of a child, and attempting to transmit obscene materials to a person under 16 years old for allegedly exposing himself via webcam to an undercover detective he believed was a 13-year-old girl and using a computer at police headquarters to communicate with the person he thought was the girl.

The complaint alleges that between December 2009 and May 2010, Haspel transmitted webcam videos of himself with his genitals exposed to a person he believed to be a 13-year-old girl who was actually an undercover detective.  He is charged with official misconduct because he allegedly sent the videos from a hotel in Columbus, Ohio, where he was attending a training conference for the police department, and because he allegedly communicated with the “girl” while on duty at police headquarters using a computer supplied by the borough for official police business.
