NEWARK, N.J. – A Morris County, N.J., man was sentenced today to 140 months in prison today for possessing and distributing over the Internet images of child sexual abuse, U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman announced.

According to documents filed in this case and statements made in court:
Special agents of the Department of Homeland Security and other law enforcement executed a search warrant at Survey’s home on Aug. 4, 2011, and seized a computer, an iPhone, and several electronic storage devices that contained images and videos child pornography. The devices included 46,353 images of child sexual abuse, including 983 images involving infants or toddlers, and 783 images involving sadomasochistic abuse. On the defendant’s iPhone, law enforcement found photographs the defendant had taken of himself downloading child pornography onto his home computer.
In addition to the prison term, Judge Walls sentenced Survey to lifetime supervised release and ordered him to pay $300,000 in restitution to the victims.
