MORRIS COUNTY — Morris County Prosecutor Robert J. Carroll, Morris County Chief of Detectives Robert McNally, and Washington Township Police Chief Jeffrey Almer have confirmed the sentencing of 66-year-old John Green of Washington Township for the distribution of Child Sexual Abuse Material (CSAM) through a peer-to-peer file-sharing network.

On January 26, 2024, Green entered a guilty plea to third-degree Possession of Child Abuse Sexual Abuse Material (CSAM). On May 31, the Honorable Ralph Amirata, J.S.C. imposed a sentence of eight years in New Jersey State Prison, Megan’s Law, and Parole Supervision for Life.

The charges stem from an investigation that revealed Green maintained a peer-to-peer file-sharing program that distributed CSAM. The investigation began when the Hunterdon County Prosecutor’s Office Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Unit identified possible CSAM on a BitTorrent site in Morris County. BitTorrent is a Peer-to-Peer file sharing network. The Hunterdon County Prosecutor’s Office referred this information to the Morris County Prosecutor’s ICAC Task Force of the Sex Crimes / Child Endangerment Unit.

Further investigation revealed that numerous media files depicting the alleged sexual exploitation or abuse of minors were stored on a BitTorrent site. These files were accessible for download, and the BitTorrent activity was traced to the defendant’s residence, where he lives alone. A search of the defendant’s electronic devices uncovered additional items suspected to be Child Sexual Abuse Material (CSAM) on his computer. An initial review identified over 1,000 items of CSAM.

The defendant was arrested on the above charges on June 2, 2023, and detained in the Morris County Correctional Facility pursuant to the Criminal Justice Reform Act.
