Perry surrendered to Special Victims Unit detectives at the Passaic County Prosecutor's Office in Totowa, New Jersey.

He is charged with sexual assault, endangering the welfare of a child and official misconduct.

He faces a maximum sentence of ten years in New Jersey State Prison.

Perry was released Thursday afternoon on $100,000 bail.
