TRENTON, N.J. – A Sussex County, N.J., man was sentenced today to 24 months in prison for using a computer in his home to distribute images of child sexual abuse, U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman announced.
Albert Rose, 55, of Lafayette, N.J., previously pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Joel A. Pisano to an information charging him with one count of distribution of child pornography. Judge Pisano imposed the sentence today in Trenton federal court.
According to documents filed in this case and statements made in court:
Rose admitted distributing images of child pornography via email using a computer located in his residence in February 2010. He also admitted to possessing more than 600 images of child pornography on his computer, which was seized from his residence in February 2012. Rose acknowledged that among the images he possessed and distributed were images which depicted minors posing in a sexually explicit manner.
In addition to the prison term, Judge Pisano sentenced Rose to serve five years of supervised release and ordered him to pay restitution of $500.
U.S. Attorney Fishman credited special agents of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), Newark Division, under the direction of Special Agent in Charge Andrew M. McLees, with the investigation leading to today’s sentencing.
The government is represented by Assistant U.S. Attorney Fabiana Pierre-Louis of the U.S. Attorney’s Office Criminal Division in Trenton.
