Atlantic Highlands Official Charged With Child Porn Possession

Atlantic Highlands Official Charged With Child Porn Possession
ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS, NJ — The Atlantic Highlands man arrested last week for alleged child porn possession is actually an official who sits on the town's environmental commission.
Brian Foley, 60, of 45 Asbury Avenue in Atlantic Highlands, was arrested and charged Thursday, July 26 by detectives with the Monmouth County Prosecutor's office. Foley is an alternate member of the Atlantic Highlands Environmental Commission.
Foley "is not a regular member" of the commission and does not serve on any other boards, Atlantic Highlands Borough Administrator Adam Hubeney told He also said that in light of his arrest, "We are discussing the issue with our borough attorney and will take proper steps to make sure he is removed or resigns" from the environmental commission.

Foley was charged with possessing and distributing images and videos which depict the sexual exploitation or abuse of a child, according to Monmouth County Prosecutor Chris Gramiccioni.
Detectives with the prosecutor's office say they investigated Foley's personal devices and did a forensic exam of one of them, they said. The prosecutor's office did not say what originally tipped them off to monitor or investigate Foley's computers.
If convicted, he faces five to ten years in a New Jersey state prison. Should Foley be convicted of either crime, he will be subject to the provisions of Megan's Law and potentially to Parole Supervision for Life.
The case has been assigned to Monmouth County Assistant Prosecutor Martha Nye.
