NEWARK, N.J. – A Morris County, N.J., man was sentenced today to 61 months in federal prison for distribution of child pornography, U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman announced.

Charles Dolick, 69, of Lake Hiawatha, N.J., previously pleaded guilty before U.S. Magistrate Judge Patty Schwartz to an Information charging him with distribution of child pornography. U.S. District Judge Faith S. Hochberg imposed the sentence today in Newark federal court.

According to documents filed in this case and statements made in court:

On or about Sept. 23, 2010, Dolick knowingly distributed more than 600 images of child pornography through a peer-to-peer file network. The images and videos Dolick distributed included multiple depictions of prepubescent children engaging in sexually explicit conduct with other children and adults.

Dolick admitted that he had been collecting child pornography for approximately 17 years and that he distributed child pornography via peer-to-peer software.

In addition to the prison term, Judge Hochberg also sentenced Dolick to five years of supervised release and ordered him to pay $3,500 in restitution to one of the victims of his offense. As part of his guilty plea agreement, Dolick agreed to forfeit his computer, hard drive, and other electronic storage media he used to commit the offense.

U. S. Attorney Fishman credited special agents of the FBI, under the direction of Special Agent in Charge Michael B. Ward in Newark, for the investigation of the case.

The government is represented by Assistant U.S. Attorney Dara Aquila Govan of the U.S. Attorney’s Office Criminal Division in Newark.
