Norristown — A New Hanover man was sent to jail after admitting that he had child pornography on his cell phone.
Stephen James Fabrizio, 42, of 2400 blocks of Magnolia Drive in the Gilbertsville section of the township, was found guilty of having child pornography in connection with him in a county prison in Montgomery County Court. He was sentenced to 9 to 23 months in prison. In the incident that occurred between January and April 2021.
Judge Thomas M. Delrich, who accepted the judicial transaction in the case, ordered Fabrizio to report to the Lower Providence prison on August 1 and sentence him.
Del Ricci also ordered Fabrizio to complete three years of probation after parole. In other words, Fabrizio will be under court supervision for about five years.

In addition, Fabrizio faces a 15-year requirement to report its address to state police in order to comply with Pennsylvania’s Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act.
The investigation began in March 2021 when we received a Cyber Tip report produced by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. In this report, the owner of a Yahoo mail account uploaded a suspected child pornography on January 27, 2021. This is due to a criminal accusation filed by Detective Michael Coil of New Hanover. ..
Child pornography contained video files of female children up to the age of three engaged in sexual activity.
Investigation revealed that an illegal activity occurred using an internet address linked to Fabrizio.
According to court documents, a detective armed with an investigation warrant appeared at Fabrizio’s residence on April 21, 2021 and seized his cell phone. In an interview with a detective, Fabrizio admitted that Yahoo’s email account was his personal account he had for about 15 years.
“He also allowed him to search for child pornography every day and had been searching for it for about a year,” Coyle claimed in his arrest affidavit.
According to criminal charges, when the detective extracted data from Fabrizio’s cell phone, he found “a large number of screen captures of child erotica and cached image files, or advertisements for child pornography.”
The alleged criminal use of the telecommunications facility was dismissed against Fabrizio as part of a plea bargain.
