TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Federal prosecutors say a central New Jersey man received sexually explicit images of a 12-year old Pennsylvania girl with whom he had an online relationship.
Chad Weber of Colts Neck is charged with receiving child pornography. He surrendered Tuesday morning and made his initial court appearance later in the day.
Prosecutors say law enforcement agents learned in April 2013 that the 21-year-old Weber had been communicating with the girl. The agents obtained copies of various chat logs and other internet-based messages, many of which were sexually explicit.
Weber and the victim also traded sexually explicit photos of each other online and discussed them in online chats.
Weber was released on $100,000 bond and will be on home detention with electronic monitoring. He could face 20 years in prison if convicted.
