Burlington County Man Admits Producing Images Of Child Sexual Abuse

CAMDEN, N.J. – A Burlington County, N.J., man today admitted his role in producing images of child sexual abuse, U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman announced.

David Clark, 49, of Southampton, N.J., pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Joseph H. Rodriguez in Camden federal court to an information charging him with three counts of producing child pornography. Clark’s detention was continued.

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

From 2004 through March 9, 2011, Clark employed, used, persuaded, induced, enticed or coerced three separate minor victims to engage in sexually explicit conduct for the purpose of producing a visual depiction of such conduct. Clark was charged federally in October 2011 by criminal complaint. Under terms of the plea agreement, Clark will be sentenced to 30 years in prison and a lifetime term of supervised release. Sentencing is scheduled for Feb. 4, 2014.

U.S. Attorney Fishman credited special agents of the FBI's Child Exploitation Task Force, under the direction of Special Agent in Charge Aaron T. Ford in Newark; investigators with the Burlington County Prosecutor's Office, under the direction of Prosecutor Robert D. Bernardi; and detectives with the N.J. State Police, under the direction of Col. Rick Fuentes, and the N.J. Regional Computer Forensic Laboratory with the investigation leading to today's guilty plea.

The government is represented by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jacqueline M. Carle of the Criminal Division in Camden.
