Using a neighbors internet access to deal collect and deal child porn leads to a Union Beach man's arrest, according to the Monmouth County Prosecutors Office.

Investigators conducted an 11-month sting into the lewd activity but then found out it was 59-year old Henry Cicerale of Park Avenue in Union Beach who was partaking in the disturbing habit.

He faces charges including second degree Endangering the Welfare of a Child for Distribution of Child Pornography, third degree Endangering the Welfare of a Child for Possession of Child Pornography and second degree Unlawful Possession of a Weapon.

Cicerale did turn himself in on March 29 to investigators.

Prosecutors say he had previously set-up the wireless Internet network at the neighbor's home and was using that network to access, download, and distribute child pornography.

A forensic review of his computers and other digital media devices uncovered hundreds of items of child pornography.

Authorities also found a loaded handgun in Cicerale's home.

At his pretrial detention hearing Wednesday, Monmouth County Superior Court Judge Paul X. Escandon ordered Cicerale released with conditions "over the objections of the Prosecutor's Office."

Cicerale, however was ordered to remain under home detention with an electronic ankle-monitoring device and is only allowed to leave his home for approved appointments and court appearances.

The Judge also barred Cicerale from using the Internet and having any unsupervised contact with children under 18-years old.

He faces five to ten-years in a state prison if convicted of distributing child porn, three to five-years if convicted on the possession charge and five to ten-years with 42-months of parole eligibility for the Unlawful Possession of a Weapon offense.

The case is assigned to Monmouth County Assistant Prosecutor Margaret Koping.

Cicerale is represented by Michael Pappa, Esq., of Hazlet.

Despite these charges, every defendant is presumed innocent, unless and until found guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, following a trial at which the defendant has all of the trial rights guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution and State law.
