A Collingswood man was sentenced today to 240 months in prison for conspiring with his former girlfriend to produce sexually explicit images of two children, U.S. Attorney Craig Carpenito announced.
According to authorities, Alexander Capasso, 44, previously pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Jerome B. Simandle to Count One of an indictment charging him with conspiring with Janine Kelley, 36, of Audubon, to engage in the sexual exploitation of children.
Judge Simandle imposed the sentence against Capasso - who has been in federal custody since his July 20, 2015 arrest - today in Camden federal court.
According to documents filed in this case and statements made in court:
Capasso began a sexual relationship with Kelley in 2010. During that relationship, Capasso took, or allowed Kelley to take, recorded images of Capasso engaged in sexually explicit conduct with a child. Capasso also took, or allowed Kelley to take, recorded images of Kelley engaged in sexually explicit conduct with two children.
In addition to the prison term, Judge Simandle sentenced Capasso to a lifetime of supervised release.
Authorities said Kelley has also pleaded guilty to her role in the conspiracy and is scheduled to be sentenced Jan. 19th.
