NJ school groundskeeper admits tricking kids into sending him nude pics on Facebook
CAMDEN — A Deptford man and former school groundskeeper admitted in federal court to creating a fake Facebook account last year and using it to get sexually explicit pictures of children over the course of two days.
Michael J. Mostovlyan, 33, created an account under the name Amber Zee using pictures of a young girl to persuade children to send him sexually explicit videos of themselves, according to U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman.
Mostovlyan was previously employed by a contractor for the Monroe Township school district, according to several accounts of police statements at the time of his July 2016 arrest. Police had said they were contacted by parents of Williamstown Middle School students who reported their children exchanged pictures of themselves and other child pornography with the groundskeeper.
Mostovlyan, 33, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Renee Marie Bumb in Camden to a charge of online enticement of a minor to engage in criminal sexual conduct, according to a statement from the office of U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman.
By pleading guilty to one count of online enticement of a minor to engage in criminal sexual conduct, Mostovlyan faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years in prison, with a maximum of life in prison. He also faces a $250,000 fine and must also register as a sex offender. He will be sentenced on June 1.
