The father of a woman accused of assaulting a teenager in a wooded area of Cape May County says he doesn't believe the charges.
Eighteen-year-old Brittany Hearon was charged with endangering the welfare of a child, police said.
Seven others who are minors, according to police, are accused of sexually assaulting and attacking the victim. Three of the teenage suspects were sent to a juvenile detention center while the others were released to their parents.
The attack happened in a wooded area of Lower Township known as "Rutherford Tract."
Hearon was released on her own recognizance.
