Newark man indicted on child rape, porn charges

A Newark man is indicted on charges of child rape.

Police say John Figura faces nearly 150 charges of child rape, sexual exploitation, and dealing in child pornography.

Undercover agents from the state's Child Predator Task Force began investigating Figura last year and found 100 images of child porn in his possession. Three of the victims were elementary school girls, two whom police say Figura sexually assaulted.

He's been behind bars on more than one million-dollars bail since Christmastime last year.
