UPDATE: Union County Man Sentenced for Receiving Explicit Material Involving Minors


By: Richard L. Smith 

Joshua Cremosnik, a 50-year-old resident of Rahway, New Jersey, has been sentenced to 80 months in federal prison after admitting to receiving videos and images involving explicit contact with minors, as announced by U.S. Attorney Philip R. Sellinger.

The sentencing took place in Newark federal court, where U.S. District Judge Julien Xavier Neals also mandated a five-year term of supervised release and ordered Cremosnik to pay restitution amounting to $208,694.

The charges stem from activities between April and August 2021, during which Cremosnik utilized a publicly accessible online peer-to-peer file-sharing platform to acquire videos and images depicting explicit contact with minors.

A lawful search of his residence led to the discovery of numerous such videos and images on his laptop and other electronic storage devices.

Cremosnik admitted to using the network to request and receive explicit materials involving minors and to storing these materials on his electronic devices.

This case underscores the serious consequences of engaging in the distribution and possession of explicit materials involving minors, with the justice system imposing significant penalties to combat such offenses.
