Silver Spring Man Arrested for Sex Abuse of a Minor

For Immediate Release: Friday, March 13, 2015

Detectives from the Montgomery County Police-Special Victims Investigations Division have arrested Jeffrey W. O’Connor, age 52, of the 700 block of Dartmouth Avenue in Silver Spring, for sex abuse of a minor.

Earlier this month, detectives began an investigation into allegations that between the years of 2008 and 2011, Jeffrey W. O’Connor, a privately-hired guitar instructor, had on several occasions, engaged in acts of inappropriate sexual contact with a juvenile male.  When the abuse began in 2008, the juvenile victim was 12 years old.  The inappropriate sexual contact occurred both at the suspect’s residence as well as at the victim’s home.

Jeffrey W. O’Connor was arrested late Wednesday night (March 11) on the strength of an arrest warrant.

O'Connor has been charged with four counts of sexual abuse of a minor and four counts of third-degree sex offense.  He is being held on $150,000 bond.

Because O' Connor was a privately-hired guitar instructor who had possible contact with other juveniles, investigators are concerned that there may be additional victims.  Anyone who believes that he/she is a victim of O'Connor's inappropriate conduct is urged to contact Detective Williams of the Special Victims Investigations Division at 240-773-5400.
