Man prosecuted under newly-revised ‘child erotica’ law
BELLEVILLE, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey man has been charged in what prosecutors say is the first case since the state expanded a law that bans sexually suggestive images of minors.
NJ.com reports 25-year-old Anthony Domenick, of Belleville, has been charged with possessing explicit images and having “child erotica” following a search of his home Wednesday.
Prosecutors say the “child erotica” law that went into effect Feb. 1 criminalizes images where children are clothed but suggestively-posed or inappropriately sexualized.
If convicted, Domenick could face up to 10 years in prison.
It’s unclear if he has an attorney.
