CAMDEN, N.J. – A Camden County, New Jersey, man was sentenced today to 33 months in prison for possessing images of child sexual abuse, U.S. Attorney Philip R. Sellinger announced.

Robert Giles, 73, of Collingswood, New Jersey, previously pleaded guilty before Chief U.S. District Judge Renée Marie Bumb to an indictment charging him with one count of possession of child pornography. Judge Bumb imposed the sentence today in Camden federal court.

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

On April 15, 2022, agents with FBI served a search warrant at Giles’s residence and discovered electronic devices that belonged to Giles. A forensic examination of those devices revealed over 45,000 unique files containing videos and images of children being sexually abused.

In addition to the prison term, Judge Bumb sentenced Giles to 10 years of supervised release and ordered him to pay $186,500 in fines.

U.S. Attorney Sellinger credited special agents of the FBI, under the direction of Special Agent in Charge Wayne A. Jacobs in Philadelphia, with the investigation leading to today’s guilty plea. He also thanked the Collingswood Police Department.

The government is represented by Assistant U.S. Attorney Andrew Johns of the Criminal Division in Camden.
