POSSESSION OF CHILD PORNOGRAPHY
Ocean County Prosecutor Bradley D. Billhimer announced that Henry Ziolkowski, 56, of Toms River, was charged with Possession of Child Pornography in violation of N.J.S.A. 2C:24-4b(5)Biii.
This investigation was the result of several referrals from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children through the New Jersey State Police Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, which identified a residence in Toms River as the location of several uploads of child pornography. On July 7, 2020, Detectives from the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office High Tech Crime Unit and Toms River Township Police Department executed a search warrant on the subject residence. As a result, Detectives seized a computer belonging to Ziolkowski which contained numerous images of child pornography. Ziolkowski was arrested and processed at Toms River Police headquarters, and transported to the Ocean County Jail where he is currently lodged pending a detention hearing.
Prosecutor Billhimer would like to acknowledge the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office High Tech Crime Unit, Toms River Township Police Department, New Jersey State Police Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, and National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, for their collaborative assistance in this investigation leading to Ziolkowski’s arrest.
The press and the public are reminded that all defendants are innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
