N.J. man jailed for sex with minor

A Cape May County man was sentenced to 57 months in prison on Tuesday for having sex with his daughter’s underage friend.

Michael Kulick, 46, of Dennis Township, pleaded guilty Feb. 6 to information charging him with one count of transporting a minor over state lines to engage in sexual activity.

Kulick in August 2012 went on vacation to Lancaster, Pa. with his family and a 15-year-old girl who was a friend of his daughter. Kulick admitted to having sex with the teen at a hotel during the trip.

After returning to New Jersey, Kulick continued to have sex with the minor for about two months, investigators said. Kulick admitted he knew it was illegal to commit statutory rape in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey. 

In addition to the jail term, Kulick was handed down 10 years of supervised release and is required to register as a sex offender. A restitution hearing has been scheduled for July 9.
