A dramatic increase in online activity throughout the state has created increased opportunities for sexual exploitation of children online, the Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office said in a statement.
In the last six months, the Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office High-Tech Crimes Unit said it has received 74 cybertips related to crimes against children.
“Operation Safe Quarantine II is the latest result of our pledge to patrol cyberspace and capture the depraved individuals who believe it is acceptable to exploit and endanger children for sexual gratification,” Burlington County Prosecutor Scott Coffina said in a statement. “There is much more work to be done, and this effort will continue to be a priority for the BCPO and the agencies who partnered with us for this investigation.”
Operation Safe Quarantine II ran from August 2020 through January 2021, and resulted in the arrests which included a youth pastor, Sean Higgins, 30, of Palmyra, who posed as a girl online and blackmailed young boys into performing sex acts on themselves for his enjoyment, the office said.
A full list of the charges each person was facing were detailed by the Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office in their statement.
The fifteen people charged over the last six months follow the initial round of arrests made during the first phase of Operation Safe Quarantine, the office said.
Ten defendants were apprehended on similar charges over a two-month period ending in July 2020, and seven of them have pleaded guilty in Burlington County Superior Court.
