McAllen Man Sentenced to 70 Months in Prison for Downloading Child Pornography
MCALLEN – A McAllen man will spend over five years in federal prison for receiving child pornography.
Rodrigo Garcia-Fuentes pleaded guilty last June.
In 2016, an Immigration and Customs Enforcement special agent located his computer after Garcia-Fuentes offered to participate in the receipt of an explicit video.
Agents executed a search warrant at his McAllen home and recovered a computer.
Inside the computer, law enforcement found over 600 videos and 600 images of pornography, some involving children under the age of 12.
Prosecutors say Garcia-Fuentes admitted to downloading the content from the internet and viewing it for the last four years.
He remains in custody pending transfer to a federal prison.
Garcia-Fuentes will have to register as a sex offender for life.
