An Atlantic County Grand Jury indicted a Hammonton man on second-degree endangering the welfare of a child for distribution of child pornography on the Internet and fourth-degree endangering the welfare of a child for knowingly possessing or viewing photographs or films depicting children in a prohibited sex act or a simulation of such acts.

It is alleged that Anthony Giacoppo, 35, committed the crimes on or about Sept. 19, 2010 after Hammonton police officers observed child pornography on Giacoppo’s cell phone. The Atlantic County Computer Crime Unit, who assisted in the investigation, performed forensics and found hundreds of photos on the defendant’s cell phone, according to Assistant Prosecutor Janet Gravitz who presented the case to the Grand Jury.

A second-degree crime carries a maximum prison sentence of 10 years and a fine of up to $150,000. A fourth-degree crime carries a maximum of 18 months in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.
