Acting Monmouth County Prosecutor Lori Linskey announced Monday that a Monmouth County Grand Jury returned a 3-count indictment against Lukas I. DeLorenzo, 36, of Neptune Township, on three counts of fourth degree Criminal Sexual Contact.

It all stems from his alleged inappropriate sexual touching of two victims over a period of time beginning around September 2019.

An investigation was then run by the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office Special Victim’s Bureau, Manasquan Police and Brielle Police.

Acting Prosecutor Linskey said that DeLorenzo, under the guise of teaching treatment methods, would inappropriately touch and grope these employees.

The alleged incidents took place at both at his office in Manasquan and in another location in Brielle.

If convicted of Sexual Contact, DeLorenzo faces a sentence on each count of up to 18 months in state prison.

The case is assigned to Monmouth County Assistant Prosecutor Nicole Wallace.
