TRENTON, New Jersey — Prosecutors say 36-year-old Charles Diggs, of Roselle, N.J. had 325,000 files depicting child pornography including 14,000 videos showing the rape of very young children.
“Diggs allegedly had the most child pornography ever found in a state investigation – more than four times the prior record,” said Attorney General Christopher Porrino. “It’s heartbreaking to think of the many thousands of children who were raped and robbed of their innocence to create the images and videos he allegedly possessed.”
Authorities became aware of Diggs after getting a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children about a Twitter account that was allegedly uploading child pornography onto the web. An investigation led police to Diggs who was arrested Sept. 3.
A search of his computers revealed the scope of his sickening collection.
A grand jury indicted Diggs on Friday on charges of with second-degree distribution of child pornography and third-degree possession of more than 100 files of child pornography. Diggs faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
