Married father charged with making child porn
BUDD LAKE, N.J. (WABC) -- A married father of two kids was arrested and charged with secretly videotaping young girls in his home, getting dressed, showered, and going to the bathroom.
It happened in the Town of Budd Lake, New Jersey, and police say it went on for years.
Before his arrest, 49-year-old Ron Oshrin seemed to have it all.
He had a nice house in Budd Lake, New Jersey, a wife, two kids; an 18-year old daughter and a son in college.
But according to the FBI he also had a dark side and a secret that until now his neighbors would never have suspected.
"He just seemed like a nice guy, a very nice guy," his neighbor said.
But according to the charges he now faces, Oshrin was a predator who was preying on kids.
Investigators allege that over the last five years, the suburban dad recorded and distributed child porn.
Now, his neighbors are shocked.
"That's terrible, I didn't expect that at all," said Alex Allison, a neighbor.
Late last week FBI agents swarmed the house after tracing an IP address posting photos to a child porn site to 64 Karen Place.
They found Ron Oshrin who allegedly confessed.
According to court Documents he:
- Admitted to producing child pornography
- Admitted to downloading and distributing child pornography on websites.
- Admitted to installing video cameras in his home.
Investigators say there were several cameras throughout the home, mostly in the bathroom and bedroom.
And, on different occasions Oshrin allegedly videotaped pre-pubescent children undressing, using the shower, and using the toilet.
If he's found guilty, Ronald Oshrin faces up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
He's being held behind bars until his next appearance in federal court on Thursday.
