March 20, 2019

FREEHOLD, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey man has admitted using his neighbor’s Wi-Fi network to download and distribute child pornography.

Monmouth County prosecutors say Henry Cicerale now faces up to 10 years in state prison when he’s sentenced June 21. The 60-year-old Union Beach man will also have to register as a sex offender and will be put on lifetime parole supervision.

Authorities say Cicerale set up the Wi-Fi at his neighbor’s home and then used it to access, download and distribute child porn. They say hundreds of child porn items were found on his computers and other digital media devices.

Cicerale pleaded guilty Monday to distributing child porn and weapon possession by a felon.
