TOMS RIVER – A Manchester man was sentenced to jail for trading child pornography with others online, according to the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office.
Lawrence Fascia, 64, was sentenced on one count of Distribution of Child Pornography, a second degree crime that carries with it 10 years of jail and a five year period of parole ineligibility. He will be subject to Megan’s Law and parole supervision for life upon release.
This charge came from a 2016 investigation. Fascia had needed computer help, and a technician found files that warranted a call to the police. Fascia’s accounts and residence were checked. Investigators found child pornography files, and emails that showed he was trading files with others.
He has a prior conviction for distribution of child pornography, as well as filming/photographing a child, and reproduction of child pornography.
