Man who had extensive child porn collection headed to prison

July 11, 2018

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — A man who had one of the largest child pornography collections ever seized by law enforcement in New Jersey is now headed to state prison.

The state Attorney General’s office says Anthony White received a six-year sentence Wednesday. He also must register as a sex offender and will be on lifetime parole supervision.

The 31-year-old Lakewood man had pleaded guilty in March to distributing child porn and attempting to manufacture it. Authorities say he had more than 36,000 videos and images of child porn in his collection.

White was among 40 men arrested in 2016 during “Operation Statewide.” That multiagency investigation was led by the state’s Internet Crimes Against Children task force, which includes state police, the Division of Criminal Justice and the U.S. Homeland Security department.
