Toms River Man Charged With Sexually Assaulting Baby Boy

Rodford Brindley filmed footage of attack while speaking with undercover detective, authorities say

A Toms River man faces up to 30 years in prison after being accused of sexually abusing a 14-month-old boy.

Rodford W. Brindley, 67, was scheduled to appear before Judge Lois Goodman in federal court today to answer a charge of sexual exploitation of a child, U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman said in a release.

In the criminal complaint filed in U.S. District Court, a special agent with the FBI attests that Brindley assaulted the boy and streamed footage of the alleged attack over the Internet while believing he was speaking to a woman in Ohio who was in fact an undercover detective with the Westerville Police Department.

The undercover detective had made contact with Brindley, using the screen name tarena16, on a website "known to be frequented by individuals interested in child pornography," the FBI agent said. The detective, posing as a single mother, chatted online with Brindley on April 2 when he indicated he was babysitting a baby boy.

Brindley, who had identified himself as "Rod" from "Central NJ," activated his webcam and asked the detective "are u sitting there hoping ill do something with him now but don't  want to ask me," the FBI agent states. The detective replied: "lol... l would never ask... that would be inappropriate given our relationship at this point."   

Without further encouragement, Brindley proceeded to sexually assault the boy while the detective captured the footage, the FBI agent said.

Law enforcement immediately contacted New Jersey authorities, who requested and acquired records from Cingular Wireless and Comcast, revealing Brindley's cell phone number and IP address. 

Brindley was arrested that day on state child endangerment and child pornography charges. 

The federal charge of sexual exploitation of a child carries a mandatory minimum penalty of 15 years in prison and a maximum penalty of 30 years plus a $250,000 fine.

No dear. you started getting shrill about 8 posts up. Aren't you the one who once told me that it's OK that some store got robbed as long as no one was hurt? Yeah, you're a bleeding heart who likes to stick up for the criminal, not the victim. You'll throw in a few "oh how terrible"'s and "I hope he's caught"'s now and again to make it look good, but deep down inside, you think a class on how to behave and lecture not to be bad again is good enough for those who like to terrorize, rape and rob.
billy jones May 24, 2012 at 02:43 PM
Mattie you make no sence whatsoever. Please go back to sleep. Alcoholism is a disease just like this man's. He can be cured if found guilty. I believe in people. Maybe you should too.

You, Securevelope, have a serious case of "false equivalency". Example: Sam: "I think that people can have some affection for their cultural heritage." Michelle: "You're just like Hitler!" Critical thinking about _any_ topic and exploring all sides should not be falsely assumed to be agreeing or supporting any (one) side at all, unless the speaker/writer expressly claims to. You need to learn the art of conversation and debate, and tone down the rhetoric.
Securevelope May 24, 2012 at 02:54 PM
Well look at that! Eggs came to your rescue, Mattie! It's always the Eggs and Mattie team when they decide they don't like what I have to say. How many threads will you be following me around in today? and how do I have a false equivalency? Seriously? You just love to pick and choose certain words, take them out of context and run with them as if I said something completely different. But hey, that's how you like to play things. You go on with Mattie and let the perverts live with you. Just make sure you make your grandchildren aware that "Mr. Likes to Touch" lives next door and not to open the door for anyone. Yeah, I bet that makes them all warm and cozy.
Eggs-n-Toast May 24, 2012 at 02:58 PM
You need to take your meds. And relax. The world is really an OK place. Don't hurt yourself, "secure".
Mattie May 24, 2012 at 03:09 PM
No, I only said that I would not feel good about the idea of KILLING someone because they were going to rob me of the few bucks in my wallet. I only said that I did not equate someone's LIFE with material things that could be replaced. That's what I said in response to YOU yappin' about carry/conceal needed in NJ. You (Clint Eastwood wannabe) wanted to be able to blow every two-bit mugger to kingdom come - like judge, jury, and executioner. But thanks for another example of your hysteria and telling me what I think and what I said- like 3 months ago. LOL I think you kinda like me, Securevelope. ;-)
Eggs-n-Toast May 24, 2012 at 03:11 PM
awww. How sweet.
Securevelope May 24, 2012 at 03:13 PM
And see? that's where you make up stuff that people you don't agree with says! I never said anything of the like. I never said I want to go around blowing every two bit mugger to kingdom come. I said people have the right to defend themselves and if shop keepers were allowed to protect their stores and selves, crime would be down. There's a difference in wanting our rights restored and going around blowing people to bits. But hey, you go on and keep twisting words. It's what you do best.
Securevelope May 24, 2012 at 03:15 PM
I hope that child's mother finds comfort in Eggs and Mattie's defense of this guy. They have so much faith in people, even those caught on film. You go girls!
Mattie May 24, 2012 at 04:15 PM
After this, I'm done for the day - at least with you, Securevelope: Securevelope February 15, 2012 Mattie, you think that protecting yourself should only be limited to the confines of your home? That my dear is hysterical (again, in the laughable context)! Mattie February 14, 2012 Like someone else said; this isn't the lawless wild west. Someone robs you, you hand over your stuff (because YOUR life is worth more than anything you can carry in your purse or wallet) and then call the police. Period. This is called responsible behavior in the face of irresponsible behavior. Killing people because they want to rob your money makes you just as big a "thug" as they are. Securevelope February 16, 2012 And for your information George, criminals don't come in and "simply ask for money" - they are robbing you which in itself is a terroristic act and should be stopped. I don't give a rat's ass if they are poor and looking for money for food. Securevolope; unless your other screen name is "John B Taxpayer" the majority of my comments were back and forth with him, and included 3 or 4 other people on both sides of the issue. It's not all about you, securevelope. And guess what? After perusing through most your comments in your profile, it's obvious your *favorite* argument tactic is to twist everyone's words, use false arguments (as someone else said) and do EXACTLY what you accuse others of doing. Done. Peace.
Mattie May 24, 2012 at 04:16 PM
Never once defended him, never will. You are sad.
Parent who is pissed at the system May 24, 2012 at 04:25 PM
Someone said to put him general pop, well let me tell ya something... Sex Offenders have their own Prison. They get special treatment. They have more rights then you and I. When every parent takes a stand and fights this, nothing will be done to change the law or the thinking of the Judges out there. I feel sorry for the families that have to deal with the pain from this. Anyone who harms a child should be put to death!!! When you harm a child not only does it effect the family right now, but it effects everything this child and family touches years down the road. The child ends up with emotional problems. Sex Offenders who harm children should never have rights to children not even their own.!!!!!
Securevelope May 24, 2012 at 04:54 PM
Mattie, you have a lot of time on your hands to go stalking me on the board and dig up all kinds of half copied posts. Get a life. Better yet, go do some volunteer work with those who've been raped, especially the children. You might become enlightened. Parent - You are absolutely right. "Some" folks here have never known anyone to be molested, let alone raped as a child or adult. Sex offenders [of children] are lower than low and when convicted, should suffer more than any murderer because they prey on the innocent.
billy jones May 24, 2012 at 06:58 PM
Parent go back to the bar. Write something worthwhile to comment on.

Securevelope May 24, 2012 at 09:13 PM
Mary, why don't you have your password changed, Patch delete your account and you start a new one? This will eliminate all the nonsense. Billy Jones - shut up. Just shut up. You are either wasted on god knows what or you are just a blithering idiot. You have nothing useful to say. And FYI - alcoholism cannot be cured, ask any alcoholic, junkie and anyone else who self inflicted dependency on themselves. They're the first ones to tell you they cannot be cured, only managed. And just in case Mattie is interested, I never once mentioned a "suggestion" or "solution" to where perverts are to be living. I only posted a link so others can keep watch of what goes on in their own neighborhoods and where they vacation. Mattie is the one who volunteered the information that, "They have to live SOMEWHERE." As for all convicted perverts, there's nothing that an old fashioned emasculator can't fix: http://www.valleyvet.com/swatches/16949_L_vvs_000.jpg
billy jones May 24, 2012 at 09:35 PM
Secure you my friend are a complete idiot. Alcoholism can be cured. But thank you so much for your useless comments. Please do us all a favor and go back to 1955 ...... Old goat.
Securevelope May 24, 2012 at 09:49 PM
Billy, put the bottle down and please note that this thread is about a baby who has been molested, not alcoholism. You are making insane posts about alcoholism about 11 posts up. I'm sure that misguided remark to Mattie was meant for me. But hey, I'm the idiot, right?
barbara May 24, 2012 at 10:45 PM
so sick.............
MKC May 24, 2012 at 10:47 PM
absolutely disgusting human being this is. and anyone who defends him is just as disgusting. i dont care what your "ailment" is...there is no excuse in this entire world that would allow someone to prey on an innocent naive victim who was forced into things they dont even understand. he should rot in a prison cell and be injected with poison the day he is released. this world does not need another fat old creepy piece of crap ruining peoples lives in such a heinous way
Patrick Sayjack May 24, 2012 at 11:26 PM
It seems like secure likes to come on these boards and try to bully everyone around.Secure lets try to remember this is about a child not your inflated ego
Securevelope May 24, 2012 at 11:34 PM
My inflated ego? You're one of "them" who is "sticking up" for the molester! Shame on you trying to implicate the undercover cop who nabbed him. You were not too worried about that child when you posted that.
billy jones May 24, 2012 at 11:58 PM
No secure shame on you. Yes this is about a child, that you don't even care about. Stop trying to convince yourself your opinion counts because it does not. I just made a big piece of you...... Then I flushed. Good day to you.
George M. Lobman May 25, 2012 at 11:44 AM
An illness that never can be cured and they should be sent to sleep as soon as it is certain that he did this.
George M. Lobman May 25, 2012 at 11:45 AM
an illness that can never ever be cured. So I suggest we send him off as soon as it can be varified that he did this! Let him explain to the angels what he did!!!
George M. Lobman May 25, 2012 at 11:48 AM
Thats what he is doing there you idiot! a cop doing his job watching and identifying. If someone can type LOL and then someone else does that to a baby! how can he be permitted to breath?
MKC May 25, 2012 at 04:24 PM
these 2 are only sticking up for the molester because it's probably their disgusting father or creepy uncle...good luck in life - and if you have kids i would suggest keeping them far from this white trash piece of excrement - unless he already got to them
Rem May 26, 2012 at 01:35 AM
Have no use for this man and neither does society ,do not need to learn anything from him or how he tics. Besides broken watches are useless any how. I will pull the switch or push the needle or pull the trigger. It should be called last offense not first.
WhyohWhy May 28, 2012 at 01:07 PM
MKC... these 2 are tag teaming the bunch of you !!! They are egging all of you on to get your riled up and posting like crazy, and you have all fallen into it ! Don't give them any more satisfaction.... FYI.... A very large majority of sex offenders/child molesters CAN NOT be rehabilitated ! Its a PROVEN fact... when asked of a panel of jailed Ofenders ( last year on Oprah when she did her show interviewing Sex offenders/ child molesters)if they were let out would they consider themselves cured and safe among children...4 out of the 5 said they would do it again if put in the situation.... Just my Opinion.
