Long Hill Man Accused of Sexually Assaulting Girl, 9

Incidents allegedly occurred last year in Rockaway Township and Long Hill.

A 57-year-old Long Hill man has been accused of sexually assaulting a 9-year-old girl on two separate occassions over the past year, the Morris County Prosecutor's Office said Thursday.

Mark Annis has been charged with three counts of sexual assault, one count of attempted sexual assault and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child.

Annis surrendered at the Long Hill Police Department on Wednesday, the prosecutor's office said. He was ordered to have no contact with the victim, her family or anyone under the age of 16, the prosecutor's office said. Annis surrendered his passport and bail was set at $125,000 with no 10 percent option.

Annis is accused of sexually assaulting the girl in Rockaway Township between Aug. 1, 2011 and Aug. 31, 2011 and again in Long Hill on Dec. 26, 2011, according to arrest complaints.

According to the arrest affidavit on file with the Morris County Courthouse, a "citizen witness" alerted the Bergen County Prosecutor's Office on Dec. 28, 2011 that the girl had been allegedly sexually assaulted by Annis at his Gillette home.

The incident was then referred to the Morris County Prosecutor's Office, the affidavit said.

The victim told police on Dec. 29, 2011 that Annis allegedly sexually assaulted her while she visited his Rockaway Township home when she was 8 years old, the affidavit said.

The victim told police Annis allegedly inappropriately touched her before stopping when her mother called for her, the affidavit said.

The girl also told police that Annis allegedly inappropriately touched her on Dec. 26, 2011 while she was at his home in Long Hill Township, the affidavit said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office Sex Crimes Unit at 973-285-6200 or the Morris County Sheriff’s Office Crime Stopper Program at 973-COPCALL.

I just wanted to make sure the guy who was arrested for inapproriately touching a child was the same guy who is the President of ANCO Environmental Services. You are right, I did google it, but Google only revealed that there was a guy with the same name who was both a alleged pedophile and president of ANCO Environmental Services. Now you have confirmed this is the guy. Thank you. That's all I needed. There could be more than one Mark Annis you know?

Are there any updates on this case? I didn't find any of those on Google? Do you know where I could find any? I live around where this creep did this, so I would like to keep tabs on him so he doesn't go near my kids.

Funny thing is, I didn't find a mugshot for him. I couldn't see one on njmugshots.com is there a reason why?

I have been wondering too. Has he been indicted? Charges dropped?
