Law Office Worker Allegedly Distributed Child Porn

Federal prosecutors say a registered sex offender employed at a northern New Jersey law office stands accused of having child pornography on his work computer.

Kevin Rease was arrested late Tuesday and charged with distributing images of child sex abuse online.

The 32-year-old Hackettstown resident could face up to 40 years in prison if convicted.

Prosecutors say an undercover FBI agent downloaded the images from a peer-to-peer file sharing network last month. Investigators soon determined the person providing the images was using an Internet address belonging to the law office in Paterson.

FBI agents executed a search warrant at the law office on Tuesday, seizing digital images they say depicted child sexual abuse.

It was not known Wednesday if Rease has retained a lawyer.
