A former New Jersey assemblyman has pleaded guilty to endangering the welfare of a child by distributing child pornography.

Neil Cohen was accused of using computers in his northern New Jersey legislative office to view, print and duplicate images of underage girls simulating or engaged in sexual acts.

Under terms of the plea agreement, prosecutors will seek a five-year prison term at Cohen's July 12 sentencing. The 59-year-old also would have to register under Megan's law and has agreed never to seek public office again.

Cohen checked himself into a psychiatric hospital after giving up his Assembly seat in 2008. As an assemblyman, the Democrat championed bills aimed at fighting child pornography.

Cohen left court without commenting.
