Lindenwold Man Convicted of Series of Sexual Assaults in His "Den of Horrors"

Howard Gregory kept two women in his Arborwood Apartments home and assaulted them for four years.

A Lindenwold man has been convicted of nine counts of assaulting two women in what prosecutors portrayed as his "den of horrors" from 2007 to 2011, Camden County Prosecutor Warren W. Faulk announced on Friday.

Howard Gregory, 51, was found guilty of four counts of second degree sexual assault, first degree kidnapping, fourth degree aggravated assault, possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, unlawful possession of a weapon and third degree terroristic threats.

The sexual assault charges against Gregory, who legally changed his name to Seven Moon, related to multiple incidents of sexual abuse against a woman who was a teenager when the assaults began.

He was also convicted of assaulting another woman who was in her early 30s. Assistant Prosecutor Lauren Pratter presented evidence to the jury that portrayed Gregory’s home in the Arborwood Apartments as a den of horrors.

The women, who were related to Gregory, were kept with little exposure to the outside world and were routinely violated.

On one occasion the older victim was restrained and assaulted, and Gregory threatened to kill her son.

Law enforcement became aware of the assaults when the abuse became so frequent and severe the victims left the apartment and reported years of assaults to the police.

Gregory will undergo a sex offender evaluation prior to sentencing, which is scheduled for Aug. 15. He faces a mandatory sentence of 15 to 30 years on the kidnapping charge alone.
