U.S. Attorney's Office, District of New Jersey

NEWARK, N.J. – A Middlesex County, New Jersey, man was sentenced today to 10 years in prison for possessing images of child sexual abuse, U.S. Attorney Craig Carpenito announced.

Sam Cynamon, 68, of Monroe Township, New Jersey, and formerly of Springfield, New Jersey, previously pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Madeline Cox Arleo to an indictment charging him with one count of possession of child pornography. Judge Arleo imposed the sentence today in Newark federal court.

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

On July 10, 2017, law enforcement officers lawfully obtained multiple computers and electronic storage media belonging to Cynamon from his residence. The computers and electronic storage media contained multiple images and videos of child pornography, including images of prepubescent children being sexually abused.

In addition to the prison term, Judge Arleo sentenced Cynamon to eight years of supervised release and ordered him to pay restitution of $21,000.

U.S. Attorney Carpenito credited special agents with the Department of Homeland Security, Homeland Security Investigations, under the direction of Special Agent in Charge Brian Michael in Newark, with the investigation leading to today’s sentencing.

The government is represented by Danielle Alfonzo Walsman, Chief of the U.S. Attorney’s Office’s Public Protection Unit in Newark.
