A former youth soccer coach was sentenced to three years in prison today for possessing images of sexually exploited children. Jorge A. Roman, 50, had been the head of the Princeton Soccer Association and a well-regarded coach.
Roman previously pleaded guilty to one count of possession of child pornography, announced Paul J. Fishman, the U.S. Attorney for the State of New Jersey.
When he was arrested in May 2013, Roman had 600 images of child sex abuse stored on various DVDs and computers at his home. Roman allegedly had ordered the images of nude young boys – marketed as "naturist films from around the world" on more than 40 occasions. Titles of the DVDs included "Sandy Bottoms," "Water Wiggles Going Commando: Boy Fights XI" and "Raw Rewind," according to court documents.
In addition to the prison term, Judge Joel A. Pisano ordered Roman to serve five years of supervised release.
