VOORHEES, N.J. (CBS) — A Voorhees man whom authorities say had some 15,000 images and 200 videos of child pornography on his computer has pleaded guilty to possession and distribution of the material in the US and around the world.

New Jersey acting attorney general John Hoffman says 23-year-old Daniel Allen Jr. pleaded guilty in Superior Court in Camden County and now faces jail time and required registration as a sex offender when he is sentenced in December.

Hoffman says in addition to trading in the images, Allen sought help from his trading partners to use some pictures he had taken of two clothed, pre-teen girls from South Jersey “and asked that they be Photoshopped into pornography scenes.”

Hoffman did not identify the girls, but acknowledged that images were created by others.

Hoffman says the Allen investigation, which culminated in his arrest in August 2012, netted authorities six other arrests of men in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Texas, Wyoming, and Virginia on child porn charges.

He says more than 60 other leads from the Allen probe have been shared with law enforcement agencies across the country. Hoffman says information also was shared with foreign investigators.
