Anthony White, from Ocean County, who was found with over 36,000 videos and images of child pornography on his computer devices was sentenced to six years in state prison.
White, 31, was one of 40 men who was arrested in 2016 during a child pornography sweep by the New Jersey Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.
White pleaded guilty to second-degree charges of distributing child pornography and attempting to manufacture child pornography.
“We are working hard through our proactive online investigations to banish the offensive notion that viewing child pornography is somehow a victimless crime,” said New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal. “Tens of thousands of children were cruelly abused to create the videos and images in White’s collection, and he exploited and re-victimized those children by his actions.”
White admitted to purposefully using file-sharing software to make 25 or more files of child pornography available to other users to download from a shared folder on his computer.
White also admitted trying to reproduce images of child pornography he had previously downloaded.
Members of the task force who search White’s home, after his arrest, seized a number of computer devices.
A forensic search revealed over 36,000 videos and images of child pornography.
White’s sick collection was one of the largest of child pornography ever seized by law enforcement in New Jersey.
Under Megan’s Law, he will be required to register as a sex offender and will be subject to parole supervision for the remainder of his life.
Depending on how they house these types of criminals, may determine how long their lifespans are. Prisoners have a code of their own and the two things they have no respect for are rapist and child offenders, who typically face a wrath, if not placed in protective custody.
After investigating where White was placed, sickeningly, I found that he was housed at ADTC, Adult Diagnostic & Treatment Center
. “The Adult Diagnostic and Treatment Center (ADTC) is a secure correctional facility operated by the New Jersey Department of Corrections. Its purpose is to provide treatment for certain repetitive and compulsive male sex offenders who have been sentenced under the New Jersey Sex Offender Act.”
Basically, he is protected until he is free! Where are our children’s rights? Where is their protection?
