Johnny Sims, 64, was sentenced today for his guilty plea to a second-degree charge of distributing child pornography, according to the office of New Jersey Attorney General Christopher S. Porrino. Sentencing followed guidelines of Megan's Law.

According to authorities, a New Jersey State Police digital technology detective in 2016 identified a digital child porn file-sharing network during an investigation, and downloaded two videos of preteen girls being raped by fully-grown men. He traced the IP address to Sims's house.

On June 10 last year, state investigators and North Brunswick police searched the house, seized the computer, and arrested Sims. Detectives said that the computer contained more than 20 degrading videos, most in a shared folder that Sims organized.

Deputy Attorneys General Lilianne Daniel and Anthony Tontore conducted the government's case. Sims was represented by Cranford attorney Anthony Palumbo.
