A New Jersey man was arrested and charged with child pornography offenses after he allegedly contacted a young girl in Oklahoma, prosecutors said Saturday.
Samuel Schwinger, 34, of Lakewood, was charged with producing, distributing and possessing child pornography, the Ocean County prosecutor's office said. Schwinger is also a registered sex offender on probation for a sexual assault in Cook County, New York.
Authorities were contacted by investigators in Oklahoma after parents of a young girl said their daughter had been contacted by someone in New Jersey posing as a young girl and asking for explicit photos of her, the prosecutor said.
Investigators tracked a phone number and account to Schwinger, he said.
A search warrant was executed Friday at Schwinger's home, the prosecutor said.
It wasn't immediately clear whether Schwinger had an attorney.
