Bergenfield Man Headed to Prison for Distribution of Child Pornography
A man from Bergenfield New Jersey will be spending time in state prison after he admitted distributing child pornography over the Internet.
The suspect, a 30-year-old resident of Bergenfield, NJ, was apprehended by law enforcement in 2013 as part of “Operation Ever Vigilant,” a statewide child pornography investigation. The suspect was one of 25 people arrested in connection with the operation.
According to Bergen County prosecutors, the suspect used a file-sharing network on the Internet to distribute illicit sexual videos and images of juveniles.
The suspect eventually reached a plea deal with prosecutors and pleaded guilty to second degree felony charges. In exchange for the suspect’s confession and guilty plea, Bergen County NJ prosecutors agreed to recommend that he receive a lenient sentence.
A Bergen County Superior Court judge has now approved the plea agreement and sentenced the suspect to three years behind bars.
When the suspect finishes his sentence and is released from prison, he will need to register as a convicted sex offender under Megan’s Law.
