Monmouth County Man, Herman Christopher Jensen Admits Posing As Teenager On Facebook To Induce Minor To Send Sexually Explicit Pictures And Videos

TRENTON, N.J (STL.News) A Monmouth County, New Jersey, man today admitted to knowingly receiving child pornography, Acting U.S. Attorney Rachael A. Honig announced today.

Herman Christopher Jensen, 68, of Union Beach, New Jersey, pleaded guilty by videoconference before U.S. District Judge Peter G. Sheridan to an information charging him with one count of knowingly receiving child pornography.

According to the documents filed in this case and statements made in court:

Special agents of the FBI began investigating Jensen for assuming the identity of a 17-year-old boy to entice and solicit an underage girl to send nude and sexually explicit images over the internet.  Jensen did this by creating a fake Facebook account, purporting to be a teenaged boy named “Kevin Bennett.” From January 2018 through August 2018, Jensen used the “Kevin Bennett” Facebook account to communicate with the victim frequently, causing her to believe that she was involved in a romantic relationship with “Kevin Bennett.”

Jensen requested nude and semi-nude photographs from the victim through Facebook’s messenger service and the victim sent him images.
