PATERSON, N.J.– A registered sex offender from Paterson was using a file-sharing program to traffic in child pornography, authorities said Thursday.

Passaic County detectives found 131 child porn files – mostly videos – on Trevawn Coakieanos' computer, Sheriff Richard H. Berdnik said.

Coakieanos, 29, already was under mandatory supervision until June 20, 2020 and parole supervision for life stemming from an aggravated sexual assault conviction, Berdnik said.

As part of his parole, Coakieanos was banned from using computers or devices to access social networks or chat rooms without permission, Berdnik said.

Passaic County Internet Crime Unit detectives arrested Coakieanos and charged him with 13 counts of possession, distribution and maintaining a file sharing program for storing child pornography, the sheriff said.

Bail was pending, he added.

The New Jersey State Parole Board and the Passaic County Prosecutors Office Sexual Investigations Unit assisted in the investigation, the sheriff said.
