TRENTON – A 25-year-old Middlesex County man was sentenced last week to 5 years in prison for distributing images and videos of child sexual abuse over the Internet, U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman announced.

Jacob Rios of Old Bridge previously pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Peter G. Sheridan to one count of distribution of child pornography. Sheridan imposed the sentence on Friday, April 5, in Trenton federal court.

According to documents filed in this case and statements made in court:

Rios admitted distributing child pornography between March 3, 2011, and July 11, 2011, using a peer-to-peer network. Rios created accounts on the network through which he downloaded pictures and videos of child pornography. He placed those pictures and videos into the shared directory of his peer-to-peer accounts and shared them with other users.

In addition to the prison term, Sheridan sentenced Rios to 10 years of supervised release. Rios agreed to forfeit the laptop and hard drives that he used to commit the offense. He must also register as a sex offender.

Fishman credited special agents of the FBI’s Cyber Crimes Squad, under the direction of Acting Special Agent in Charge David Velazquez in Newark, for the investigation leading to the sentence.
