President of the Cedar Bridge Military Academy faces child porn charges July 1, 2009

Steven T. Baryla, 227, president of the Cedar Bridge Military Academy, an Ocean County-based, military adventure camp has been charged with possessing and distributing child pornography.   The investigation started when an concerned citizen who had allegedly been in contact with Baryla through e-mail contacted Beachwood police. 

The Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office seached the academy’s offices and it seems like they found something.  This can be both good and bad for him.  I first want to know who this concerned citizen was and how this person would know that Baryla allegedly had child porn on the computer.  Next, I want to know who else had access to this computer.

The fact that this computer was at the academy is bad because it could be really tough to file a motion to suppress if they didn’t have a warrant.  However, it could be good for them because if more people had access to it, the more likely it could have been someone else that downloaded this child porn.

An attorney should be able to get an idea from the client as to what defenses are possible but will not know everything for a few months.

Story is here.
