    TRENTON — A former New Jersey lawmaker who championed legislation fighting child pornography was sentenced Thursday to a five-year term for viewing nude images of underage girls.

    Neil Cohen will serve the term either in prison or a mental hospital. The state Corrections Department will decide which venue within the next 10 days. He could become eligible for release and be placed under intense supervision in several months.

    Appearing pale and unsteady, Cohen, 59, did not speak during sentencing. His lawyer told the judge the former assemblyman has been suicidal and has several mental health issues, including chronic depression. He has been hospitalized for months, according to the lawyer, Mark Tuohey.
