A Wallington, New Jersey man recently pleaded guilty to charges of child pornography possession.
The suspect, a 66-year-old Wallington resident, was charged with the sex offense earlier this year after federal authorities investigated him. Members of the Newark division of Homeland Security Investigations reportedly discovered evidence that the suspect purchased online sex shows from people in the Philippines.
The suspect was placed under arrest and charged with receiving child pornography. Now the suspect has reached a plea agreement with prosecutors and pleaded guilty to the charges. He recently made an appearance in U.S. District Court in Newark, NJ and formally entered his guilty plea.
Afterwards, the suspect posted a $125,000 bond and secured his release from prison. He will remain free until he returns to federal court in 2018 and is sentenced. At that time, he could face up to 20 years behind bars in a federal penitentiary. Additionally, the suspect will probably be required to register as a convicted sex offender under Megan’s Law.
