Hardyston Man Faces Federal Child Porn Distribution Charges

A man from Hardyston was charged with exchanging images of child sexual abuse by the US Magistrate Judge in Newark.  Judge Cathy Waldor charged Marshall M Cohen with one count of distributing images of child sexual abuse, according to a statement released by US Attorney Paul Fishman.

Cohen, 48 years-old was living in Maryland at the time of his arrest.  The complaint against him says in December 2014 an investigation by Maryland local law enforcement found another Maryland resident had produced images of child sexual abuse depicting a two-year old girl to whom he was thought to have had access.  The Maryland resident shared those images with Cohen, in exchange for other images of child sexual abuse that Cohen had, according to the federal complaint.

On Oct 21, law enforcement officers executed a search warrant at Cohen’s Hardyston address.  Cohen admitted to having previously sent and received images of child sexual abuse at that address.
