PALISADES PARK, N.J. — A 50-year-old Palisades Park man was sentenced to three years in New Jersey prison by a superior court judge for distribution of child pornography on the internet, Attorney General Christopher S. Porrino announced.

Louis Cedeno was arrested in “Operation Ever Vigilant,” a child pornography sweep conducted in 2013 by the New Jersey State Police, the Division of Criminal Justice, the New Jersey Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force and federal partners.

He pleaded guilty last year to a charge of second-degree distribution of child pornography, and will be required to register as a sex offender under Megan’s Law, according to the press release.

In pleading guilty, Cedeno admitted that he knowingly used file-sharing software to make multiple files of child pornography readily available for any other user to download from a designated “shared folder” on his computer, authorities said.

A forensic examination of computer equipment seized from him in Operation Ever Vigilant revealed numerous images and videos of child pornography, according to Porrino.

Cedeno became a target of Operation Ever Vigilant after a detective in the New Jersey State Police Digital Technology Investigations Unit (DTIU) downloaded two videos of child pornography from a shared folder on his computer while monitoring a file-sharing network popular with sex offenders, the press release says.
