Ex-teacher in NM pleads guilty in child porn case

October 24, 2012 • State News

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Federal authorities say a retired teacher in New Mexico has pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography.

Under a plea agreement announced Tuesday, prosecutors say 75-year-old Joseph F. Zinkiewicz will be sentenced to 10 years in prison followed by a supervised release term to be determined by the court.

The Raton resident also has to register as a sex offender after he completes his prison sentence.

Zinkiewicz has been in federal custody since his April 4 arrest. His sentencing hearing has yet to be scheduled.

Zinkiewicz was arrested on a criminal complaint that alleged he distributed, received and possessed child pornography between last October and the day of his arrest. He was indicted in June.

Authorities say Zinkiewicz was convicted of distribution of child pornography in New Jersey in 2002.
