N.J. man pleads guilty to Internet, porn charges

CAMDEN, N.J. (Reuters) — A New Jersey man admitted in court Friday that he collected pornographic images of children at the same time he was offering $1.5 million over the Internet for the murder of any abortion provider.

Nicholas Morency, 30, an Atlantic City casino employee, faces up to six years in prison and $350,000 in fines after pleading guilty in a U.S. district court to charges of intimidation — related to the Internet offer — and child pornography, federal officials said. He will be sentenced June 22.

In 1999, Morency, from Villas, N.J., used his home computer to set up a Web site that offered anyone $1.5 million to kill an abortion provider.
