Police Charge Man With Sending Porn To Underaged Girls In Ocean County

A 19-year-old man was charged with allegedly utilizing three separate Facebook accounts to send pornographic materials to underage women - one in the Beachwood area - within Ocean County, according to Ocean County Prosecutor Joseph D. Coronato

Tyler Anderson of Cliffside Park was charged with third-degree child endangerment and third degree distribution of obscenity to persons under the age of 18.

In November 2013, a woman reported that her 10-year-old daughter had received pornography and graphic sexual dialog from an unknown male during a Facebook chat, authorities said.

Beachwood Police immediately contacted the Ocean County High Tech Crime Unit for assistance.  The HTCU Detectives through computer forensics were able to capture the identity of the sender.

On Wednesday, the Ocean County HTCU and Beachwood Det. Sean Langan, assisted by the Cliffside Park Police Department and the Office of the Bergen County Prosecutor, executed a search warrant at 792 Fairview Lane in Cliffside Park.

As a result of evidence seized, the partnering agencies arrested and charged Anderson.

The charges allege that Anderson’s activity began when he befriended one underage girl from Ocean County on Facebook. Anderson’s network of befriended young girls between the ages of 10 and 14 soon expanded to hundreds in Ocean County by creating two additional Facebook accounts under the assumed identities of Alec Rivera and Eric Plato.

In many cases pornography was exchanged, authorities said.     

Charges were signed by Ocean County HTCU Detectives and approved by Senior Assistant Prosecutor Hillary Bryce. Bail was set by Municipal Court Judge James Gluck at $20,000 with 10 percent.

As part of the bail condition Anderson is prohibited from any contact with the victim. He is presently lodged in Ocean County Jail.

The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information regarding Anderson’s activity is asked to contact Det. James Hill of the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office at 732-929-2027 or Det. Sean Lagan of the Beachwood Police Department at 732-286-6000.

Bail is meant to insure his appearance at trial. It is not punishment. It can't be constitutionally. If you want to complain about his sentence if he's found guilty, be my guest. For right now I'm glad to see a branch of government acting in accordance with the law.

I do not know what motivates pedophiles, but is it possible this kid used really poor judgement and thought he was pranking people, and not actually the type to abuse children? I have kids and do not like to hear this kind of stuff. But putting this kid in jail and hoping he gets abused is a bit primitive and uncivilized. I'd rather see him get treatment, if possible, to prevent this or worse from ever happening in the future.

I don't know what motivated him or if he used poor judgement. Guess what? No one commenting here does. I commented about his right to have bail that is not excessive. I will let the jury sort out the facts. They and a judge will decide if he's not guilty or deserving of punishment and/or treatment.
