A 24-year-old Princeton man was arrested Tuesday for sharing explicit images of minors on the internet, Mercer County Prosecutor Angelo J. Onofri reported.
Officials say Jose Donis-Siguil was arrested by Mercer County Prosecutor’s Detectives Charles Antinoro and Ryan Minnick at his residence Tuesday afternoon. He was charged with possession and distribution of explicit images of minors, both second-degree crimes, and lodged at the Mercer County Correction Center pending a detention hearing.
The New Jersey State Police Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force initiated an investigation after receiving a tip from the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children.
Prosecutor Onofri urged anyone who has information about the online distribution of explicit images of minors – or who suspects improper contact by unknown persons communicating with minors online or possible exploitation or sexual abuse of minors – to please contact the New Jersey Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force tip line at 1-888-648-6007.
Despite having been charged, every defendant is presumed innocent until found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
