뉴저지 한인 남성, 아동 성범죄 혐의 체포

주정부 특별 단속에 31명 ‘덜미’…음란물 소지 등 혐의

뉴저지주 법무부가 아동 성범죄자들을 색출하기 위해 실시한 일명 ’24/7 작전(Operation 24/7)’에서 20세 한인을 포함한 31명의 남성 용의자가 체포됐다.

14일 체리힐 쿠리어 포스트 등 지역 언론에 따르면 뉴저지 사법당국은 지난 4월1일부터 6월30일까지 실시한 이번 작전을 통해 2명의 아동 성폭행 용의자와 2명의 아동 포르노 제작자, 그리고 27명의 아동 포르노 소지 및 유포 용의자를 체포해 기소했다.

이 가운데 라이언 올슨(20)과 다치 던구(25), 로버트 라인하트(52), 사무엘 산티아고(54) 등 4명은 1급 중범죄 혐의로 기소됐으며 한인 유진 김(20) 등 27명은 아동 포르노물 소지 및 배포 혐의로 체포됐다. 특히 이들이 소지한 동영상 대부분이 어린이 성폭행 관련 영상이어서 충격을 주고 있다.

주법무부에 따르면 체포된 용의자들의 연령은 18~65세로 다양했으며 작전을 위해 뉴저지주 경찰과 연방 국토안보부 수사국(HSI), 각 카운티 검찰청 등이 참여했다.
