A South Toms River man who authorities said was employed as a school janitor has pleaded guilty to child pornography charges and is now awaiting sentencing.

Randy Hull, 44, pleaded guilty Tuesday to distribution of child pornography in the courtroom of Superior Court Judge James M. Blaney. As part of the plea, he has forfeited his public employment as janitor with Long Branch public schools.

Hull remains free on posted $75,000 bail pending his sentencing, currently scheduled for March 23, 2018.

Hull’s guilty plea stems from his Aug. 10, 2016 arrest by the Ocean County Prosecutor’s High Tech Crime Unit. The arrest was part of a six-month investigation, dubbed “Operation Statewide” by the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, of which OCPO HTCU is member.

The operation tracked images of the sexual exploitation of minors circulating on Internet file-sharing networks to individual IP addresses, which led police to the home addresses of suspects in each of the state’s 21 counties.
