NEW MILFORD, N.J. -- A 53-year-old Westwood man exchanged sexually explicit photos with a 16-year-old girl he met online, then took her a South Hackensack motel, where he plied her with alcohol, authorities said Monday.

Joseph J. Donnelly was charged with providing alcohol to a minor, child endangerment and possession of child pornography, Detective Sgt. Kevin Van Saders told Daily Voice. A judge ordered him held on $75,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail, he said.

The girl told police she met Donnelly online, exchanged the photos with him and met him at the motel, Van Saders said.

New Milford detectives identified Donnelly and arrested him at his home on Friday.
