NEWARK, NJ – A Springfield man was arrested on Monday morning for possession of child pornography.

Sam Cynamon was charged with one count of possession of child pornography following a 7-month investigation that dates back to January, Acting U.S. Attorney William E. Fitzpatrick said in a press release. He is currently being held on $100,000 unsecured bond imposed by U.S. Magistrate Judge Leda Dunn Wettre.

This is the second time Cynamon has been charged with possession of child pornography.  According to Fitzpatrick, the 66-year old was previously sentenced to 27 months in prison after pleading guilty to one count of the same charge in March 2005.
