An Egg Harbor City man is facing three charges relating to the possession and distribution of child abuse images on social media.

The Atlantic County Prosecutors Office says Patrick W. Daly, 26, has been arrested and is being held in the Atlantic County Jail. They report the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force received a number of referrals about inappropriate postings on the KIK social media platform.

"A subsequent investigation led Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office Detectives to identify Daly and locate more than 1000 images and videos of child sexual exploitation in his possession. He was served with three (3) 2nd-degree charges surrounding the possession and distribution of child abuse images via a social messaging service."

A reminder that all those accused are presumed innocent until proven guilty.
