2 New Jersey Men Charged with Producing Child Pornography

Two Camden County men are facing charges for allegedly taking photographs of two teens engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

Burton Gersh, 68, would instruct a 16-year-old and a 17-year-old to perform sexual acts while Les Sidweber, 73, photographed the minors, according to investigators.

The suspects brought the teens from the Philadelphia area to their Cherry Hill, New Jersey homes, where the crimes took place, authorities said.

Both Gersh and Sidweber face two counts of production of child pornography. Each man could face up to 60 years in prison if convicted.

Local police assisted the FBI with the investigation.
