YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: A married data entry clerk from Fort Lee had sex with a 14-year-old girl and was being held on $350,000 bail, authorities said this afternoon.

Joey C. Lopez, 52, was arraigned yesterday on charges of sexual assault, aggravated sexual contact and child endangerment following his arrest hours earlier, Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli said.

Lopez, of McCloud Drive, was taken into custody by members of Molinelli’s Special Victims Unit and Fort Lee police after a relative of the teen went to police, the prosecutor said.

Detectives from both agencies interviewed the girl and she “described to them in great detail what had occurred,” Molinelli said.
