NJ Man Pleads Guilty to Child Pornography In Worcester

 by TWIW StaffOctober 28, 2021

WORCESTER - A New Jersey man pleaded guilty in federal court in Worcester on Wednesday, October 27, to charges in connection to attempting to produce child pornography.

Jordan Winczuk, 36, of Bellmawr, N.J., pleaded guilty to one count of attempted sexual exploitation of a minor and one count of commission a felony offense involving the sexual exploitation of minor as a registered sex offender. The judge set sentencing for February 18, 2022.

According to federal prosecutors, Winczuk contacted a boy who disclosed he was 11 years old in January 2018, posing as a teenage girl, the brother of the purported teenage girl and a first responder. Winczuk attempted to convince the 11-year-old boy to photograph his genitals and send those pictures to Winczuk via Instagram.

A search of Winczuk’s home in February 2018 recovered cell phones that contained child pornography and included multiple conversations in which he requested sexually explicit images from other apparent minors.

At the time, Winczuk, a level three sex offender, was on parole following a state conviction in New Jersey for sexually assaulting a boy and endangering the welfare of a child through the distribution of child pornography.

The charge of attempted sexual exploitation of a minor provides for a mandatory minimum sentence of 15 years and up to 30 years in prison and a fine of $250,000. At sentencing, the court could find that Winczuk’s prior convictions subject him to a mandatory minimum of 35 years and up to life in prison for this charge.
