Ex-NJ lawmaker to be sentenced in child porn case

TRENTON, N.J. - October 18, 2010

Neil Cohen could be sent to prison for five years Monday.

Cohen acknowledged viewing and printing images meant for sexual gratification from a computer in his former legislative office. He left at least one image at a receptionist's desk, leading to the investigation and charges.

Cohen will be required to register as a sex offender under Megan's Law and be subject to lifetime supervision by the Parole Board.

The ex-assemblyman agreed never to seek public office again. He is likely to be disbarred.
