A Verona man was sentenced on Wednesday to 10 years in prison for persuading a girl to perform sexual acts while he watched through video chat programs.
Paul R. Kleinman, 34, who also has a Jersey City address, previously pleaded guilty to enticing a minor to engage in sexual activity. U.S. District Judge Faith S. Hochberg imposed the 10-year sentence and ordered Kleinman to seven years of supervised release.
According to the U.S. Attorney's Office, Kleinman communicated with a female juvenile through Skype and FaceTime applications on his tablet and computer for about a month between September and October 2012.
Kleinman instructed the girl to perform sexual acts on herself as he watched, the U.S. Attorney's Office said.
