Ocean County Prosecutor Bradley D. Billhimer announced that on August 4, 2022, Jeremy Bradley-Forman, 34, of Tuckerton, was charged with Possession of Child Pornography in violation of N.J.S.A. 2C:24-4b(5)(b)(iii).
This investigation was the result of referrals from the New Jersey State Police Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. The Task Force detected that a Google Account user was downloading images of child pornography from the internet. An investigation by the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office High Tech Crime Unit identified a Google Account user with a Tuckerton address as the individual downloading the images of child pornography; that individual was further identified as Bradley-Forman.
On August 4, 2022, Detectives from the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office High Tech Crime Unit and Tuckerton Police Department executed a court-authorized search warrant on Bradley-Forman’s residence in Tuckerton. As a result, Detectives seized a desktop computer with a hard-drive containing images of child pornography. Multiple additional electronic items were seized from Bradley-Forman’s residence and are pending forensic examination. Bradley-Forman was subsequently taken into custody at his residence, processed at Tuckerton Police Department Headquarters, and transported to the Ocean County Jail where he is presently lodged pending a detention hearing.
Prosecutor Billhimer commends the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office High Tech Crime Unit, Tuckerton Police Department, United States Department of Homeland Security-Investigations Unit, and New Jersey State Police Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, for their collaborative assistance in connection with this investigation leading to Bradley-Forman’s arrest.
The charges referenced above are merely accusations and the press and public are reminded that all defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
