Clement Bilski, Jr., a 43 year old self-employed New Jersey contractor, was indicted yesterday on hundreds of child sex assault and pornography counts after authorities said he spent years molesting kids and recording them while he worked at their homes.   Working as a carpenter and handyman, Bilski abused the children in their own homes, often while caretakers were elsewhere in the houses, then offered them toys and candy to stay quiet.  He used ropes and handcuffs to detain children, videotaped himself abusing them and showed pornographic photos and videos to at least two of them.  He is accused of preying on at least 11 girls and boys, the oldest just 8 years old, between 1998 and 2005.  If convicted, he faces up to 20 years in prison on each of the sexual assault charges.  Bail was set at $1 million.
