Tamarac Man Arrested In Child Porn Case

TAMARAC (CBS4) – Tamarac Police say a South Florida man admitted to downloading multiple images of child pornography onto his computer.

Alan Joseph Cortazzo Jr., 34, was arrested and charged with four counts of possession of child pornography.

Police say Cortazzo accessed the illicit images on a peer-to-peer file sharing network.

Investigators with the South Florida Internet Crimes Against Children traced down the IP address, which was registered to Cortazzo’s father, who shares the same name.

According to the arrest affidavit, Cortazzo Jr. admitted to downloading four still images and deleting them after pleasuring himself.

Cortazzo Jr. also admitted that he had never touched a minor in a sexual manner, but desired to.

He is being held in the Broward County Jail on $41,000 bail.

    He is not guilty of these charges.These initial charges were general because of a huge investigation that Mr. Cortazzo Jr. was wrongly blended into. His charges have already been dropped and/ or reduced. This man is autistic and when you meet him, you will see that his mannerisms are child- like. He is not a normal 34 year old man. He has no developed social skills and is very shy. His family is seeking family counseling for him and the entire family. Shame on the media for blowing this out of proportion. You haven’t a clue the impact this article has had on Mr. Cortazzo Jr and the entire family. Why don’t you get the entire story first, then report. Really dissapointing.
