HOUSTON – A federal judge has found a 43-year-old legal permanent resident who lived in Sugar Land guilty of receipt, access with intent to view and possession of child pornography, announced Acting U.S. Attorney Abe Martinez.

 

U.S. District Judge Alfred H. Bennett found Jacinto Lopez-Toledo guilty following two days of trial.

 

Lopez-Toledo came to the attention of law enforcement after investigators found evidence that he was accessing files from a website known to contain child pornography. A search warrant was executed on his residence on Dec. 1, 2015, at which time investigators seized two desktop computers, a laptop computer and an external hard drive. 

 

The forensic examination of the seized devices revealed Lopez-Toledo had 50,216 images and 941 videos of child pornography. These images and videos included children under the age of 12, bondage and acts of violence. Some of the images are of known victims as identified through the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. 

 

At trial, the court found Lopez-Toledo had an additional 527,844 images and 969 videos which appeared to be child pornography but could not be confirmed as involving a minor. The court also heard that Lopez-Toledo had been collecting and viewing child pornography for several years, dating back to as early as 2003. 

 

Lopez-Toledo has previously admitted he would view and download child pornography from the Internet and also from file sharing networks. Prior to trial, he argued those statements should be suppressed as well as the original search warrant which started the overall investigation.

 

The judge ultimately found him guilty as charged.

 

Previously released on bond, Toledo-Lopez was ordered into custody following the verdict today where he will remain pending his sentencing, which will be set at a later date. At that time, he faces up to 20 imprisonment for the receipt of child pornography and a maximum of 10 years for intent to view and possession of child pornography.

 

The FBI and the Pearland Police Department conducted the investigation with the assistance of the Sugar Land Police Department and Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Julie N. Searle and Kimberly Leo prosecuted the case. 

 

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by the United States Attorneys' Offices and the Criminal Division's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals who sexually exploit children, and to identify and rescue victims.
