It's four decades in prison for an Ocean County man who committed unspeakable acts against two infants.
Acting U.S. Attorney Rachael Honig says 36-year-old Sebastien Attar of Brick previously pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual exploitation of children. Separately, Attar also pleaded guilty to one count of advertising child pornography.
A judge imposed a 40 year prison term on Wednesday in federal court in Trenton.
According to court documents:
Beginning in mid-2017, federal law enforcement began investigating individuals participating in a private chat messaging group dedicated to the discussion and dissemination of images and videos depicting the sexual abuse of children. In March 2018, in connection with the investigation of [that] chat group, federal law enforcement agents executed a search warrant at Attar’s Brick, New Jersey residence, and seized a number of electronic devices and electronic storage media.
Honig's office says during a forensic review of the electronic items that were seized, law enforcement, "discovered graphic images in which an individual – later identified as Attar – had photographed himself sexually abusing two infants."
In addition to the prison term, Attar was sentenced to a lifetime of supervised release.
