FLEMINGTON, NJ (Hunterdon County) – A Hunterdon County man has been sentenced to three years in prison after pleading guilty to endangering the welfare of a child, according to acting Hunterdon County Prosecutor Michael J. William.
On Nov. 25, 2020, Kevin Reedell, 38, of Flemington was arrested and charged with first-degree endangering the welfare of children for encouraging and directing a child to send him videos over the internet in which the child exposes intimate body parts. He was also charged with third-degree possession of child pornography for knowingly viewing videos that depict the sexual exploitation or abuse of a child, Williams said.
Reedell’s arrest followed a referral by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children to the New Jersey State Police Internet Crimes Against Children Unit, of which detectives from the Hunterdon County Prosecutor’s Office are participating members. The joint investigation was conducted by the Hunterdon County Prosecutor’s Office’s Special Victim Unit and the Flemington Borough Police Department, Williams said.
Reedell pled guilty to endangering the welfare of a child and was sentenced on April 16, by the Honorable Angela Borkowski, J.S.C., to three years in state prison, Williams said.
