PROSECUTOR JOHN L. MOLINELLI

Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli announced the arrest of SCOTT SELDERS, Ridgewood , New Jersey, on charges of Endangering the Welfare of a Minor (specifically, Possession of Child Pornography). SELDERS was arrested on Friday, November 14, 2014, without incident.

The arrest is the result of an investigation conducted by members of the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office Computer Crimes Unit under the direction of Chief Carmen MARTINO. 

The arrest stemmed from an Internet investigation in which SELDERS was using the internet to acquire images and videos depicting child pornography. In this case, the child pornography contained over 100 images as well as over 25 videos of pre-pubescent children engaged in sexual acts. As a result of a court authorized search warrant at SELDER’S residence, his computer and additional items were seized that contained these images and videos. Also seized were a small amount of marijuana and related drug paraphernalia. 

Scott SELDERS was charged with one (1) count of Endangering the Welfare of a Child for being in possession of child pornography, one (1) count of possession of a controlled dangerous substance, namely marijuana in a quantity under fifty (50) grams, and one (1) count of possession of drug paraphernalia. Bail for SELDERS was set by the Honorable Jay Kim at $20,000.00 with no ten percent cash alternative and restrictive internet usage. Scott SELDERS was remanded to the Bergen County Jail in lieu of bail.

Prosecutor Molinelli states that these charges are merely accusations and that the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt and would also like to thank the Ridgewood Police Department for their assistance in this investigation.
