Mahwah Man Charged with Possession of Explicit Images of Minors

Acting Bergen County Prosecutor Dennis Calo announced the arrest of Charles J. Jandris, 53, of Mahwah, on a charge of possession of explicit images of minors.

According to authorities, in September 2018, members of the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Cyber Crimes Unit received information that Jandris viewed and/or possessed explicit images of minors. A months-long investigation revealed Jandris used the Internet to view and possess digital files depicting nude and sexually explicit prepubescent minors.

As a result of the investigation, Jandris surrendered to the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office on Friday and was charged with one count of possession of explicit images of minors in an amount less than 100 files.

Officials say Jandris is scheduled for a first appearance in Central Judicial Processing Court in Hackensack on Mar. 13th at 9 a.m.

Acting Prosecutor Calo states that the charge is merely an accusation and that the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
