Suspect Charged with Years-long Abuse of Teen

A Herndon man has been charged in Loudoun County with sexually abusing a juvenile during the past four years.

Eric W. Judy, 53, was charged with carnal knowledge of a child (13 to 15 years old), taking indecent liberties with a child by person in custodial or supervisory relationship, and production of child pornography.

The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office investigation began May 1 after the victim confided the information to a family member. The victim, now 17, reported the suspect began sexually abusing him in May 2013, when he was 13 years old.

The suspect is a family friend and often took the child alone on trips in Loudoun, other areas of Virginia and other parts of the United States, according to the Sheriff’s Office. Special Victims Unit detectives are reaching out to the other jurisdictions as part of their continuing investigation.

Judy was arrested Wednesday night at his home by members of the Fairfax County Police Department. He is being held without bond at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center.

Anyone with any additional information regarding this case is asked to contact Det. E. Wilk at 703-777-0475.
