A Monroe Township man, last week, pleaded guilty for the second time to possessing images of child pornography.

Sam Cynamon, 67, formerly of Springfield, entered his plea on May 17 before U.S. District Judge Madeline Cox Arieo in federal court in Newark. The guilty plea is to one count of possession of child pornography, according to U.S. Attorney Craig Carpenito.

According to information of the U.S. Attorneys District of New Jersey Office, authorities obtained computers and storage devices from Cynamon’s residence that contained “multiple images and videos of child pornography, including images of prepubescent children being sexually abused.”

Prior to Cynamon’s guilty plea last week, in 2005 he confessed to possession of child pornography in 2005 and was sentenced to 27 months in prison. As a result of the two guilty pleas, he faces a minimum of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. His sentencing is scheduled for Sept. 19.

Carpentino credited agents at the Department of Homeland Security, Homeland Security Investigations, lead by acting special agent in charge Brian Michael in Newark, that resulted in Cynamon’s latest guilty plea.
