O’Toole Urges Stronger Child Porn Penalties In Light of Today’s Exposé

Senator Kevin O’Toole (R-Bergen, Essex, Morris, Passaic) called for immediate upgrades to child pornography criminal penalties, in light of today’s exposé by the Star-Ledger depicting a rapid proliferation of child pornography.

“As a parent and public servant charged with protecting children and families, I am utterly repulsed by the expanding lengths predators will go to get their fixes by destroying vulnerable lives,” O’Toole said. “Our communities must be protected from the disgusting impulses of the most disturbing criminals, and that starts with the elimination of early release for those convicted of producing, sharing, storing and enabling the destruction of childhood innocence.”
