32-year-old Zachary S. Brawer of Lincoln Park, NJ was sentenced to five years in prison after pleading guilty to possessing and sharing inappropriate photos of children, back in August.
In addition, Brawer was given 20 months of parole ineligibility, with lifelong parole supervision and will need to register as a sex offender.
According to General Gurbir S. Grewal, Brawer was in possession of child pornography within an online shared folder. Over 100 files of these photos were found, which also included about 20 hours of video.
He was arrested through "Operation Safety Net," which is the statewide effort in minimizing sex crimes such as this and other sexual crimes.
As noted on the NJ Patch, General Grewal stated that they are continuing their "collaborative and proactive efforts to arrest child pornography offenders, as long as children continue to be sexually abused to create these vile materials..."
Brawer was just one of the overwhelming amount of 79 people imprisoned, as part of this "Operation Safety Net" effort. This effort was made by the New Jersey Regional ICAC Task Force, and lead by New Jersey State Police, the Division of Criminal Justice, U.S. Homeland Security Investigations, all 21 County Prosecutors' Offices along with other state, county and local law enforcement agencies.
