He was convicted of the sexual assaulting a 13 year-old girl in Cape May County in 1999, for which he was sentenced to three years in prison. Nathaniel Krieg, 37, of Lawrence Township, designated as a tier 2 Megan's Law sex offender, served 3 years in prison and was paroled in 2001. Part of his parole included the stipulation that he have absolutely no contact with juvenile females.
According to law enforcement officials in published reports, four years ago the New Jersey State Parole Board granted a petition by Krieg to have that prohibition lifted
so he could live with his girlfriend and her young daughter. Krieg's girlfriend supported the request
and even spoke to the parole board on Krieg's behalf as a character witness.
The prohibition was lifted and within two years of his release, he re-offended and there was a second victim.
According to officials with the Cumberland County Prosecutor's Office in a report by the News of Cumberland county, Krieg had been living with his fiance in Lawrence Township when he began sexually assaulting her daughter in 2002, when the victim was 11. The incidents would continue for the next four years.
