59-year-old Peter S. Yeager of Pine Valley Court has been charged with one count of Possession of Child Pornography following his arrest on Wednesday. Senior Assistant Prosecutor Kristin Pressman, who reviewed the investigative evidence alleging Yeager possessed images of children engaged in sexual acts, approved the charge.

The Ocean County Prosecutor’s High Tech Crime Unit, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), and Little Egg Harbor Township Police Department teamed up in this arrest to stop child exploitation.

Yeager is being held in the Ocean County Jail pending his first court appearance. Criminal charges are merely accusations; the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
