A New Jersey man already facing child pornography charges is now being accused of talking about acts of child cannibalism online.

Robert Mucha, 56, of Newton, has now added enticing a minor to engage in criminal sexual activity to the allegations against him.

Court reports said that Mucha talked a 15-year-old boy into traveling from New Jersey to Pennsylvania with him, and then sleeping overnight at Mucha’s apartment in Stroudsburg in October 2010. An Associated Press story in the Pocono Record reported that Mucha was arrested in July and admitted to sexual contact with the boy.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Andrew Bruck said investigators looked over 30,000 lines of online chat room conversations where Mucha wrote about his sexual fantasies of child cannibalism. Bruck called the charges “unspeakably horrific.” According to, authorities described Mucha’s online text as "vivid and gruesome."

Reports say that Mucha carried on conversations about roasting and eating children with another man from Kansas. NBC News reports prosecutors alleged that one time Mucha told the man it was “stupid” for Jerry Sandusky, Penn State football coached sentenced for pedophilia, to have abused one of his victims in a semi-public gym shower.

Mucha allegedly told police that when he taught band classes in New Jersey during his 30s, he would also watch teenage boys shower.

He also allegedly had computer images of children engaging in sex acts. Mucha allegedly told prosecutors that he has touched over 100 children inappropriately.

Mucha was working as a volunteer emergency medical technician when he was arrested, according to an Associated Press report on He could receive a life sentence if he is convicted.
