A New Jersey fire chief who was arrested in 2015 for sharing child pornography over fire department computers, has pled guilty.
Former Audubon Park Volunteer Fire Company fire chief John Terruso pled guilty yesterday to state charges of second-degree distribution of child pornography and third-degree possession child pornography.
According to the New Jersey Attorney General’s Office, Terruso was caught by investigators who were monitoring a file-sharing network for child pornography. More than 1,000 files of suspected child pornography were found on four laptop computers and electronic devices.
Terruso will be sentenced in August. Under the plea agreement, prosecutors will recommend he serve six years in prison. The final decision will rest with the judge. Terruso will be a registered sex offender.
