Two Monmouth County men have been indicted on a number of charges including the possession and distribution of child porn.

A Monmouth County Grand Jury handed up an eleven-count indictment charging Brandon Pascoe, 36, of Keyport, and Craig Reeves, 31, of Long Branch with conspiracy to distribute child sexual exploitation material, distribution of child sexual exploitation material and other related charges, Monmouth County Prosecutor Chris Gramiccioni announced on Tuesday.

Both men were charged following an investigation that began in 2018 being handled by the Department of Corrections, the Cumberland County Prosecutor’s Office, the Keansburg Police Department and the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office which learned that Pascoe allegedly directed Reeves to send him images of child sexual exploitation through an email system.

Police later learned that Pascoe had over 1000 images of child sexual exploitation in his possession.
