A 2015 Stockton University graduate named in two civil suits alleging sexual assault will have his first post-indictment appearance Friday on related criminal charges.

Zachary Madle, 25, of Wildwood, was indicted on one count of aggravated criminal sexual contact and two counts of invasion of privacy by a grand jury last month. He is set to appear in Atlantic County Criminal Court Friday morning for an arraignment.

Madle recorded a video without consent in which he inappropriately touches a female victim and then posted the video on the social media app Snapchat, according to the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office.

The charges mirror allegations made in one of the civil lawsuits filed in federal court in July, which also name Stockton and Madle’s former fraternity, Pi Kappa Phi, as defendants.

A petition was started in July on Change.org to have the Prosecutor’s Office pursue charges against Madle.
