One of two people charged for crimes involving a minor appeared in Camden County court Monday for his trial. Court records say 34-year-old Matthew McMannamy of Montreal, a former Lebanon resident, pleaded guilty to five felonies, including endangering the welfare of a child and tampering with evidence. McMannamy appeared before Judge Aaron Koeppen and was sentenced to 5 years in the department of corrections to run concurrently with any other sentences.
In July 2020, McMannamy’s wife Jessica, also a former Lebanon resident, was seen on video touching a child inappropriately. Court documents say Matthew saw the video and helped Jessica delete it. Jessica is charged with seven felonies, including statutory sodomy and child molestation. Her trial is scheduled for November 2021.
