NEWARK — A former Edison Little League coach was sentenced to 37 months in federal prison for possession of child pornography, U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman announced today.

Everett Abney, 43, of Edison was a coach for Edison’s Midtown National Little League at the time federal agents interviewed him at his home on Feb. 4, 2009. During a review of Abney’s computer following the interview, law enforcement officers found several hundred images of child pornography, including multiple depictions of prepubescent minors.

At his plea, Abney admitted that for approximately a year and a half, he regularly searched the internet for images of child pornography and saved them to his computer.

In addition to the prison term, Judge Stanley R. Chesler sentenced Abney to five years of supervised release. Abney will also be required to register as a sex offender.
