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.
