PARAMUS — A man sentenced to five years probation after being convicted in 2011 for having more than 600 child porn images on his computer is now facing new charges of distributing and possessing child porn.

Justin Birdsall, 26, was arrested after a search warrant was executed by the Bergen County Prosecutor's Office Cyber Crimes Unit, according to Bergen County Prosecutor Gurbir S. Grewal.

Grewal said the search uncovered pictures and videos of child exploitation, and it was also learned that Birdsall was using his computer to retrieve and distribute images and videos. He also was found to use a file-sharing program making it easier for other people to download the files.

Birdsall was charged with one count of third-degree endangering the welfare of a child for possession of child pornography, as well as one count of second-degree endangering the welfare of a child for distribution of child pornography.

According to federal court records, Birdsall was sentenced to five years probation, a year of house arrest and ordered to register as a sex offender. He is no longer registered on the state and federal database for sex offenders. In the years since his sentencing, federal judges allowed Birdsall to travel overseas on vacations with family on two occasions.

Birdsall is being held at the Bergen County Jail pending a first court appearance scheduled for Wednesday.
