ONLY ON CVP: A married Bogota man who installed security programs on computers was sentenced to four years in state prison Friday for trafficking pornographic images of children.
Superior Court Judge Edward Jerejian cited the need to protect children, as well the frequency of the illegal behavior by Jorge McCausland, 55, in handing down the prison sentence.
McCausland also must remain on Megan’s Law parole supervision for life.
Members of the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Computer Crimes Unit and Bogota police arrested McCausland in January 2014 after they said they found several instances of him sharing more than 100 explicit files.
He posted $75,000 bail three days later and eventually pleaded guilty to charges of sexual exploitation of a child for sharing fewer than 25 files.
