TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - A New Jersey man swept up in a state child pornography crackdown is now headed to prison.

Prosecutors say Nil Choudhury received a four-year sentence Friday. The 27-year-old Margate man will also have to register as a sex offender.

Choudhury had pleaded guilty in March to distributing and possessing child pornography images and videos. Prosecutors say he used file-sharing software to download and distribute the items.

Choudhury was among 25 people charged in February 2013 as part of “Operation Ever Vigilant,” a multiagency investigation led by the state police and the state’s Division of Criminal Justice.

Authorities say a state police detective downloaded two child porn videos from a file-sharing network popular with sex offenders. The computer address from which the videos were downloaded was then traced to Choudhury’s residence.
