Former Pediatric Medical Assistant Sentenced to 12+ Years in Child Sexual Exploitation Case
PHILADELPHIA – U.S. Attorney William M. McSwain announced that Cameron Carlucci, 27, of Philadelphia was sentenced by the Honorable Berle M. Schiller to 151 months in federal prison, followed by 10 years supervised release. Carlucci was convicted of distributing and possessing child pornography from 2016 through his arrest in 2018. During that time, he amassed more than 56,000 images and videos that depicted mostly prepubescent boys, infants, and toddlers being sexually abused and exploited.
At the time that Carlucci distributed these images and videos over the Internet, he had already been convicted in Philadelphia in 2011 for possession of obscene and other sexual materials, for which he received a 5-year probationary sentence. Almost immediately after the termination of his probation, Carlucci began committing the sexual crimes against children in this case. At the same time that he was committing these crimes, Carlucci sought out and obtained employment at Valley Pediatrics in Warminster, PA as a medical technician. To obtain his employment with Valley Pediatrics, Carlucci falsified his application by denying his criminal history.
“Not only did this defendant commit the heinous crime of possessing and distributing child pornography, he lied to get a job that would put him in close proximity to children,” said U.S. Attorney McSwain. “Parents and caregivers bring their children to doctors’ offices with the expectation that they will be safe and cared for, not in the presence of a known sexual predator. We thank the judge in this case for ensuring that Carlucci will be behind bars and unable to be in contact with children for a very long time.”
The case was investigated by the FBI and is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Michelle Rotella.
