Camden County Prosecutor Mary Eva Colalillo and Cherry Hill Police Chief Bud Monaghan reported a Cherry Hill man convicted on child porn charges faces a possible sentence in excess of 150 years in state prison.

A jury on Tuesday found 67-year-old Sylvester H. Chew guilty on 66 total counts.  The charges include 37 counts for possession of child pornography, 13 counts for creating child pornography, 13 counts for invasion of privacy, two counts for criminal attempt to endanger the welfare of a child and one count for endangering the welfare of a child.

Chew used small cameras hidden in a bathroom and bedroom at his home to surreptitiously photograph or film a young girl, who was between 9 and 12 years old, while she was nude.  The crimes occurred between April 2008 and August 2011 when the victim was living at Chew’s home.

During the trial, Assistant Prosecutor Kelly Testa presented evidence and testimony showing Chew possessed hundreds of sexually explicit images and videos of the girl as well as other children.  Chew also attempted to solicit the girl to sleep in the nude and to pose nude with him for a photo shoot.

Chew was arrested at his home in August 2011 after another adult reported the crimes to the police.

Chew is scheduled to be sentenced on August 28 before Superior Court Judge Richard F. Wells.

Released Wednesday, June 17, 2015.
