Ex-corrections officer sentenced for receiving child porn

November 16, 2018

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — A former New Jersey corrections officer who admitted receiving images of child sexual abuse is now headed to prison.

Stephen Salamak received a five-year sentence Thursday. The 39-year-old Lodi man will also have to serve 10 years of supervised release once he’s freed from prison.

Salamak had pleaded guilty in July. He had been suspended without pay following his arrest in October 2017.

Federal prosecutors have said an undercover officer first made contact with Salamak after he posted on Craigslist that he was looking for women and moms “that are into Cheese Pizza,” a reference to child pornography.

After police executed a search warrant on his email, prosecutors say they found an email with five attachments showing nude images of young girls.
