A Ridgefield Park man was arrested over the weekend for allegedly distributing child pornography, according to prosecutors.
Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli announced the arrest of 36-year-old Nazar Hasan, a citizen of Iraq, who resided in Ridgefield Park on charges of endangering the welfare of a minor, specifically possession and distribution of child pornography.
Hasan was arrested on Saturday, October 11, 2014, without incident. The arrest, which is the result of an investigation conducted by members of the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Computer Crimes Unit under the direction of Chief Carmen Martino, stems from an Internet investigation in which Nazar Hasan was using the Internet to acquire and transmit and image depicting child pornography.
In this case, the child pornography contained an image of a pre-pubescent child engaged in a sexual act.
