14 men face child pornography charges in New Jersey

Fourteen men in New Jersey are accused of distributing child pornography online.

Acting state Attorney General John Hoffman announced the arrests Monday. He says each suspect used file-sharing software to make "multiple files" of child porn available for other users to download from shared folders.

Those charged range in age from 24 to 66 and the come from all walks of life. They include an engineer, a mail carrier, an auto mechanic and a retiree.

Hoffman says one suspect threw a computer down a stairwell in an attempt to destroy the hard drive.

Hoffman said the charges stem from the first significant child porn sweep conducted under New Jersey's new, stricter child pornography law. He said the arrests occurred over several weeks, starting Sept. 30 and concluding last Thursday.
