Former Cinnaminson resident charged with distributing child porn

The 34-year-old suspect currently lives in Hudson County

The following report is on file with the Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office:

A former resident of Cinnaminson has been charged with possessing and distributing child pornography while living in the township late last year, according to Burlington County Prosecutor Scott Coffina.

The 34-year-old man, who presently lives in Harrison, Hudson County, was charged with three counts of endangering the welfare of a child. Two of those involved distribution of child pornography and were second degree, while the other charge involved possession of child pornography and was third degree.

The investigation began when the Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office High-Tech Crimes Unit received intelligence from the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office High-Tech Crimes Unit that the suspect was sharing child pornography online in October 2017 while living in Cinnaminson, including videos and images of a pre-pubescent girl involved in sex acts with men and animals.

He was taken into custody without incident at his residence on April 3 by detectives from the BCPO High-Tech Crimes Unit and the New Jersey State Police. A search warrant was previously executed at the home of a relative in Cinnaminson where he had resided by investigators from the Prosecutor’s Office, the Cinnaminson Township Police Department, the New Jersey State Police, and the United States Immigration And Customs Enforcement (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations.

Multiple electronic devices were seized and will be analyzed by detectives from the BCPO High-Tech Crimes Unit.

The case will be presented to a Burlington County Grand Jury to be considered for indictment. The 34-year-old man will be prosecuted by Assistant Prosecutor Stephen Eife, supervisor of the BCPO Sexual Assault/Child Abuse Unit.

The investigation was conducted by the BCPO High-Tech Crimes Unit, which is a member of the New Jersey State Police Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force and the New Jersey State Police Cyber Terrorism Task Force. The lead investigator was BCPO High-Tech Crimes Unit Detective Kevin Sobotka.

All persons are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
