Neil Cohen, a New Jersey lawyer who served in the state Assembly, pleaded guilty Monday to endangering the welfare of a child by distributing child pornography, a second-degree crime that could send him to prison and get him disbarred. Cohen admitted that he viewed pornography on a computer in his legislative office and printed copies that he put in a receptionist's desk. The plea agreement calls for Cohen to be barred from public employment or elected office. Also, he must register as a sex offender under Megan's Law.
