A former band teacher in Belleville and Lakewood shared pornographic images of children and cannibalism, authorities said. Roseanne Colletti reports.
A Sussex County man charged with luring a teenager for sex and possession of child pornography is also accused by federal authorities of discussing his fantasies of kidnapping, raping and eating children with other online predators.
Robert Mucha, of Newton, N.J., was arrested in July and charged with a single count of posessing child pornography. He is expected to appear in federal court Wednesday as authorities announced new charges against the 56-year-old man who worked as a volunteer EMT in Andover and taught band and bugle corps to teenagers in Belleville and Lakewood, authorities said.
In addition to two counts of child pornography charges, Mucha will be charged with child luring in connection with an encounter he had with a 15-year-old New Jersey boy at his apartment in Stroudsberg, Pa.
Mucha admitted in post-arrest statements that he touched hundreds of boys for sexual gratification and that he was interested in child cannibalism, according to the U.S. Attorney's office in Newark.
According to Mucha's chat log on Yahoo! Messenger, Mucha swapped pornographic images of children and shared his desire to rape, roast and eat children, court papers say.
A message was left for Mucha's attorney, a federal public defender in Newark.
