Ex-NJ rep pleads not guilty to child porn charges

Ex-NJ rep pleads not guilty to child porn charges

A former New Jersey lawmaker who had championed bills aimed at fighting child pornography has pleaded not guilty to child porn charges.
Neil Cohen pleaded not guilty Tuesday to charges of official misconduct and possessing, reproducing and distributing images of underage girls engaged in sexual acts.
Prosecutors say the 57-year-old Cohen admitted to viewing child porn but rejected a plea bargain.
A judge says he can remain free without bail. However, Cohen is not allowed to be around schools or playgrounds, access the Internet other than for business or have unsupervised contact with children under 16.
The former Democratic assemblyman from Roselle faces up to 30 years in prison if convicted on all charges.
