Convicted sex offender in Atlantic City charged with having child porn

CAMDEN — A convicted child sex offender has been charged with downloading and viewing more than 3,500 images of child pornography, authorities said Friday.

Keith Clack, 41, of Atlantic City, was charged Thursday with receiving child pornography on several of his electronic devices at his home, acting U.S. Attorney William Fitzpatrick said.

Clack, a registered sex offender, was found to have viewed the images on his cell phone, a Galaxy tablet, several iPads and at least one computer, according to court documents.

Investigators linked to Clack through a Peer-2-Peer file sharing network between May 6 and May 20, the documents said.

On June 20, they searched the apartment where he lives with his wife and two young children, 5 and 6 years old, the court documents said.

Clack appeared Friday in Camden before U.S. Magistrate Judge Karen Williams, who ordered that he be incarcerated, Fitzpatrick said in a news release.

The court documents said Clack was charged in 1999 with sexual assault on a minor and endangering the welfare of a child in Atlantic County. He was sentenced to 12 years in prison and was paroled in September 2006.
