Law Enforcement Officers arrest multiple men on charges of child pornography, including one arrest in Margate.
"He never did anything wrong all his life."
The words of a mother as she defends her son, 23-year-old Nil Choudhory who was arrested and charged on allegations of distributing and possessing child pornography.
"He's very smart, very decent, a very compassionate person," said Kalpana Choudhory. "I do not believe he can do anything wrong, because I know my son better than anyone else."
Choudhory along with 23 men and one juvenile were arrested as part of "Operation Ever Vigilant".
The operation, which began three months ago, was intended to uncover sex offenders who possess and distribute child pornography and child rape videos.
"Each of the 25 men allegedly has multiple files on their computer, consisting of multiple images of children being sexually assaulted or a child engaged in prohibited sexual acts," said Attorney General, Jeffrey Chiesa.
According to the Attorney Generals Office although the videos were allegedly viewed in private, it does not make the act acceptable.
"This is not a victimless crime, the fact that this information is shared and viewed in private doesn't make it a victimless crime, and were going to treat it as a serious victim crime," said Chiesa.
"I have two girls. So to think about people doing that to little kids, its gross."
Chris Brugger who lives one block away from Choudhory on North Huntington Avenue says the allegations are disturbing and that he will take the necessary precautions to protect his family who moved to Margate less than two months ago.
Shortly after speaking with neighbors police were called to Choudhory's home where a man, who may or may not have been the suspect, was taken away in an ambulance.
The Division of Criminal Justice will prosecute the charges issued from "Operation Ever Vigilant" including Chouhurdy's.
Multiple agencies, including "New Jersey Internet Crimes Against Children" assisted in the 25 arrests, which took place between February 18th, and the 22nd.
Five of the suspects, not including Choudhory still remain in police custody.
