In just the last few several weeks, we've reported on multiple arrests of accused predators or child pornography users.
• Police say a Pemberton man tricked a 13-year-old girl into sending nude pictures via Facebook.
• An Atlantic County man is accused of sending nude pictures to minors — and one allegedly sent one back.
• In late November, police arrested a 24-year-old substitute teacher from Elmwood Park for allegedly using his computer to view and distribute sexually explicit videos of young girls.
• New Jersey State Police are making a plea for information on more victims of a man they say sexually assaulted a 14-year-old boy on multiple occasions. He was first arrested after a detective working undercover online tricked the man into thinking he was a 13-year-old boy interested in meeting for sex, police say.
