James Boland
BERGEN COUNTY, N.J. -

A Warren Co., N.J., man sent naked pictures of himself over the Internet to who he thought was a 14-year-old girl, prosecutors said.

James Boland II, who turns 23 on Wednesday, was arrested Friday on charges he attempted to endanger the welfare of a minor, and attempt to disseminate obscene material to a minor.

Boland, of Frelinghuysen, N.J., was using the Internet to conduct sexually explicit chats with the purported child.

Boland is employed at Land of Make Believe, an amusement park in Hope, N.J.

He is in the Bergen County Jail in lieu of $25,000 bail.
