Yesterday we told you some reasons as to why people wish to partake in the vile act of collecting child porn. In the second part of our two part series, we find out how the suspects are being tracked and what needs to be done to make sure they don't re-offend.

Monmouth County Prosecutor Chris Gramiccioni says they're able to track down these predators but catching them isn't always an easy task, especially finding out who's behind the screen-name.

"It's a hallmark of anyone involved in a criminal activity to try and conceal and disguise their identity and the activity that they're involved in," Gramiccioni said. "One of the biggest challenges we face is not just finding these images and who might be distributing them as far as a username goes, but it's trying that user name into a live actual person and trying to figure out who that is."

The internet is a terrific tool that can be used or abused like anything else in life.

But when it's used for deviant things like partaking in a child porn network, someone's days of having internet privileges are likely numbered.

Gramiccioni says they have a team of detectives and officers in the MCPO Computer Crimes Unit who dive deep into the web looking for the creators of these images and videos.

"We have undercover operations where we're posing as people that are involved in this type of activity to try and meet out who's involved, target them, continue a criminal investigation therefrom trying to determine the length of the conspiracy or how many people are involved in a particular distribution network," Gramiccioni said. "From there when we have probable cause to charge someone, we'll swear out charges and in many cases we'll execute search warrants and seize electronic devices and do forensic computer examinations. That's how we induce all of our evidence."

From there, they look to see how the big the network this person may be apart of and take them all down.

Now we take more of a look to see what can be done to prevent people from ever getting involved in this lewd activity.

It starts with sexting.

Ocean County Prosecutor Joe Coronato cautions teens against sending nude photos of themselves to anyone.

"Those pictures are being sent on the internet and people are able to grab it and post it in different places and then they want to know how those pictures got out on the web, Coronato said. "Once it's out on the web, you can't put the genie back in the bottle."

Coronato also has a message for parents and strongly urges them to closely monitor their children's online activity.

"It may seem to be innocent but the problem is that you really need to know where they're going, what they're searching and what they're doing," Coronato said. "A lot of times they (parents) just allow their child to just sit in their own bedroom or basement and they're not familiar with what they're doing or who's on face-time with them and that is a huge, huge problem."

So what's the diagnoses and how is it prevented and treated?

Why someone collects and deals child porn may be due to something in their wiring that believes it's okay to commit such a heinous crime.

Chairman of psychiatry at Jersey Shore University Medical Center and Corporate Medical Director for Behavioral Health Services in Hackensack Meridian Health's southern region, Dr. Ramon Solhkhah says many of the abusers now were abused themselves as kids.

"Psychologically there's this phenomenon called 'identification with the aggressor' and it's a deep seeded psychological thing and is not something that can often times be consciously aware of," Solkhah said. "If they're (these kids) are the victims of trauma they try and...since they're so powerless and victimized, what they tend to do is they want to be powerful and protect themselves. That leads them down the road of becoming an aggressor themselves."

He says it's critical that child victims of sexual abuse get the treatment they need early on to shape different healing and healthier behaviors for their own future.

This is why it's important for an adolescent to have a good relationship with a pediatrician.

"We need to be comfortable taking sexual history's and talking to people honestly about what goes on behind the closed bedroom door," Solkhah said. "That includes in children as they're going through their teenage years and puberty and dealing with all these changes in their body. (It's important) to have that pediatrician who they feel comfortable and can talk with about these sorts of activities, so that they're setting the stage for normal, healthy development rather than this trajectory that takes them off into deviant behavior."

He explains that this behavior is certainly treatable.

"There's always a difference between thoughts and behaviors," Solkhah said.

He explains that having thoughts is one thing, but acting on those thoughts is something different entirely.

Solkhah says one of the ways those incarcerated can avoid re-offending is through therapy or by taking some medicine.

"We often times use medications to help including some female hormones to decrease the sex drive and we may use some of the anti-obsessive medications which are the same ones we use for obsessive compulsive disorder to decrease some of those compulsions and rituals that go along with this behavior," Solkhah said. "It's a very comprehensive and intense treatment and one that not a lot of mental health professionals typically perform routinely."
