RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews.com) -- A man who took pornographic photographs of a seven-year-old relative and posted them on an Internet file sharing site, has been sentenced to 20 years in prison and lifetime supervised release, announced Daniel G. Bogden, United States Attorney for the District of Nevada.
Gregorio Evaristo Sarabia-Garcia, 31, of Sparks, Nev., was sentenced on Tuesday, Sept. 3, 2013.. Sarabia-Garcia pleaded guilty on June 3, 2013, to one count of production of child pornography and one count of receipt of child pornography.
According to the court records, between March 27 and April 26, 2012, an investigator with the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force in Reno conducted an online undercover operation on an Internet file sharing network to identify individuals who were advertising, possessing, and distributing child pornography in northern Nevada. The investigator says Sarabia-Garcia, who lived in an apartment in Sparks, had placed numerous images of child pornography on the file sharing network. Investigators obtained and executed search warrants for several computers that Sarabia-Garcia had at his apartment, and found pornographic photographs of a seven-year-old relative of Sarabia-Garcia, as well as over 150 additional images of child pornography which Sarabia-Garcia had received from the Internet. These images depicted prepubescent minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct, including some files that depicted sadistic and masochistic conduct. Sarabia-Garcia admitted to investigators that he had taken the photographs of his relative with his cellular telephone and transferred them to his computer.
