New Jersey man prostituting teens online

FREEHOLD, N.J. (AP) — Authorities say a New Jersey man who owns an online broadcasting service allowed underage juvenile girls to engage in sex acts and receive tips from viewers.  Officials say 32-year-old Robert Ianuale of Hazlet would pay a 14-year-old from New Jersey and a 14-year-old from Maryland a percentage of the tips. Users paid to view his SwerveCast site.

Ianuale was arrested Monday on charges of promoting prostitution of a minor, child endangerment, possession of child pornography and other counts.  Authorities say Ianuale, using the online name "Fist Pump," also offered viewers $100 to sexually assault a 25-year-old New York City woman and broadcast the event.

He's held on $450,000 bail in the Monmouth County Jail and is awaiting a hearing. It's not known if he has a lawyer who can comment.
