CAMDEN, NJ—A Burlington County, New Jersey man today admitted his role in producing images of child sexual abuse, U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman announced.
David Clark, 49, of Southampton, New Jersey, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Joseph H. Rodriguez in Camden federal court to an information charging him with three counts of producing child pornography. Clark’s detention was continued.
According to documents filed in this case and statements made in court:
From 2004 through March 9, 2011, Clark employed, used, persuaded, induced, enticed, or coerced three separate minor victims to engage in sexually explicit conduct for the purpose of producing a visual depiction of such conduct.

Sentencing is scheduled for February 4, 2014.
