NEWARK, N.J. – A citizen of Ireland pleaded guilty to a federal charge of transportation of child pornography, following an investigation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI).
Farrell Corrway, 29, admitted that among the images of child pornography were depictions of prepubescent minors and portrayals of sadistic conduct or other depictions of violence to children. Corrway also admitted that on Sept. 7, 2010, he transported more than 600 images of child pornography into the state on an external hard drive that was in his possession. Corrway, who was present in the United States on a travel visa, was the subject of a federal child pornography investigation.
HSI conducted a search of Corrway's possessions at Newark Liberty International Airport and identified multiple images of child pornography on the external hard drive in Corrway's possession.
As part of his guilty plea, Corrway agreed to forfeit the external hard drive that he used to commit the offense. He will also be required to register as a sex offender.
The transportation of child pornography count to which Corrway pleaded guilty is punishable by a maximum potential of 20 years in prison, a mandatory minimum prison sentence of five years in prison, and a $250,000 fine. Sentencing is currently scheduled for Sept. 11, 2012.
