A city man has been arrested for allegedly sharing numerous video and image files of child pornography through a file sharing network, according to Passaic County Sheriff Richard Berdnik.
Mohieddin Alsafarjalani, 45-year-old, was arrested on Thursday. He is charged with second-degree possession of child pornography, distribution of child pornography, maintaining child pornography, and third-degree possession of child pornography.
Berdnik said the investigation into Alsafarjalani’s internet activity began after the Passaic County Sheriff’s Office Internet Crime Against Children Task Force received information an individual was sharing child pornography files and videos from a computer network in the City of Paterson.
“I want to commend the detectives involved in this investigation and subsequent arrest. It is important that law enforcement continue to actively investigate crimes that exploit children. I want to thank the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office in assisting with this investigation,” Berdnik said on Friday afternoon.
