Former band teacher admits child porn charge

NEWARK - A former New Jersey band teacher has pleaded guilty to downloading child pornography and luring a teenage boy to his apartment for sex.

Robert Mucha, of Newton, was charged last year with possession of child pornography and enticing a minor to engage in criminal sexual activity.

The U.S. Attorney's Office says Mucha convinced the teen to travel from New Jersey to Stroudsburg, Pa., where Mucha tried to initiate sexual contact with the youth.

At the time of his arrest, the 57-year-old worked as a volunteer emergency medical technician in Andover, Sussex County. He had previously taught band and Bugle Corps to teenagers in Belleville and Lakewood.

During a court hearing last year, prosecutors disclosed excerpts from online chats where Mucha allegedly expressed his sexual fantasies of child cannibalism.

Mucha is scheduled to be sentenced on Nov. 19.
