Asbury Park Man Sentenced for Sending Kiddie Porn via Hand-Held

The defendant from Asbury Park who admitted sending images of child sex abuse through his Blackberry smartphone is given 41 months in prison.

John Nutt, 55, was sentenced today in a Trenton federal courtroom by U.S District Judge Joel A. Pisano, according to information from New Jersey U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman’s office.

Nutt pleaded guilty to one count of distribution of child pornography. He’s required to register as a sex offender and is subject to five years parole after prison.

Federal investigators built their case around a woman in Nevada who reported finding the images loaded into her cell phone on April 10, 2011. She told investigators there that she didn’t recognize the originating phone number.

Authorities traced the images to Nutt’s device. He was arrested after a warrant search of his dwelling and seizure of the hand-held unit the following month.

The probe entailed members of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Homeland Security Investigations under Special Agent in Charge Andrew M. McLees; the Monmouth County detectives led by Acting Prosecutor Christopher Gramiccioni;  Asbury Park Police directed by Chief Mark Kinmon; and members of Sheriff Michael Dillard’s staff in Mineral County, Nevada.
