CAMDEN, NJ—A Burlington County, New Jersey man was sentenced today to 30 years in prison for his role in producing images of child sexual abuse, U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman announced.

David Clark, 49, of Southampton, New Jersey, previously pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Joseph H. Rodriguez in to an information charging him with three counts of producing child pornography. Judge Rodriguez imposed the sentence today in Camden federal court.

According to documents filed in this case and statements made in court:

From 2004 through March 9, 2011, Clark employed, used, persuaded, induced, enticed, or coerced three separate minor victims to engage in sexually explicit conduct for the purpose of producing a visual depiction of such conduct.

In addition to the prison term, Judge Rodriguez sentenced Clark to a lifetime term of supervised release.

U.S. Attorney Fishman credited special agents of the FBI’s Child Exploitation Task Force, under the direction of Special Agent in Charge Aaron T. Ford in Newark; investigators with the Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office, under the direction of Prosecutor Robert D. Bernardi; and detectives with the New Jersey State Police, under the direction of Col. Rick Fuentes; and the New Jersey Regional Computer Forensic Laboratory, with the investigation leading to today’s sentencing.

The government is represented by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jacqueline M. Carle of the Criminal Division in Camden.
