Passaic County, N.J., Man Sentenced To 10 Years In Prison For Possession Of Images Of Child Sexual Abuse




NEWARK, N.J. – A former delivery driver from Totowa, New Jersey, was sentenced today to 120 months in prison for possessing images of child sexual abuse, U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman announced.

Anthony Chiampi, 49, previously pleaded guilty before U.S. Magistrate Judge Michael A. Hammer to an information charging him with one count of possession of child pornography. U.S. District Judge Faith S. Hochberg imposed the sentence today in Newark federal court.

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

Chiampi is registered sex offender, having been previously convicted for endangering the welfare of a child. As a result, he is subject to community supervision for life.

On March 14, 2013, as part of his community supervision, officers of the N.J. Division of Parole visited Chiampi’s residence in Totowa. The officers discovered 63 disks that contained images and videos depicting child sexual abuse, including material that involved prepubescent minors.

In addition to the prison term, Judge Hochberg sentenced Chiampi to 10 years of supervised release.

U.S. Attorney Fishman credited the N.J. State Parole Board, under the direction of Chairman James T. Plousis, and special agents of the FBI’s Child Exploitation Task Force, under the direction of Special Agent in Charge Aaron T. Ford in Newark, with the investigation leading to today’s sentencing.

The government is represented by Assistant U.S. Attorney Danielle M. Corcione of the U.S. Attorney’s Office General Crimes Unit in Newark.
