A former New Jersey band teacher has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for downloading child pornography and luring a teenage boy to his Poconos apartment for sex.

Federal prosecutors said Robert Mucha, 58, of Newton, N.J., also must register as a sex offender under the sentence imposed Wednesday.

He also will have to pay $10,000 in restitution and will be on lifetime supervised release, with restricted access to computers, the Internet and children.

Mucha pleaded guilty last August to receiving child porn and enticing a minor to engage in criminal sexual activity.

Prosecutors said Mucha convinced the teen to travel from New Jersey to Stroudsburg to spend a day with him and then sleep over. Mucha eventually admitted to sexual contact with the teen.
