TRENTON, New Jersey — A central New Jersey man faces prison after pleading guilty to distributing child pornography over the Internet.

The state attorney general's office says Celalletti "Steve" Koc (KOTCH) of Hamilton in Mercer County pleaded guilty Thursday to a second-degree charge. The state will seek a five-year sentence with 2½ years of parole ineligibility when he's sentenced in January.

Koc is one of more than two dozen people charged in two child pornography sweeps conducted by the state and federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement investigators that focused on offenders in New Jersey.

The 26-year-old Koc admitted he used his computer at his auto repair business in Hamilton to make child pornography images available for other Internet users. Authorities say some of the videos seized from his computer included scenes of child rape.
