Officials announced that Sam Cynamon, 67, of Monroe Township, and formerly of Springfield, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Madeline Cox Arleo in Newark federal court to an indictment charging him with one count of possession of Explicit Images of Minors.
According to documents filed in the case and statements made in court:
On July 10, 2017, law enforcement officers lawfully obtained multiple computers and electronic storage media belonging to Cynamon from his residence. The computers and electronic storage media contained multiple images and videos of Explicit Images of Minors, including images of prepubescent children being sexually abused.
Officials said in March 2005, Cynamon pleaded guilty in the District of New Jersey to possession of Explicit Images of Minors and was sentenced to 27 months in prison. Because of his prior conviction, the count of possession of Explicit Images of Minors to which Cynamon pleaded guilty today carries a mandatory minimum potential penalty of 10 years in prison, a maximum potential penalty of 20 years in prison, and a $250,000 fine.
Sentencing is scheduled for Sept. 19th.
