McAllen man, 30, sentenced to 70 months in prison for receiving child pornography videos

A 30-year-old McAllen man was sentenced to 70 months in prison on Wednesday, nearly nine months after he pleaded guilty to receiving and downloading child pornography from the internet.

Rodrigo Garcia-Fuentes, 30, of McAllen pleaded guilty on June 2, 2017, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney's Office Southern District of Texas.

Prosecutors say federal investigators found 650 videos and 658 images of child pornography on Garcia-Fuentes' personal computer during a search warrant on July 29, 2016. Some of the children in the videos were identified as victims through the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, according to the news release.

Garcia-Fuentes admitted to federal investigators that he downloaded and viewed child pornography from the internet and had been downloading the explicit content for about four years.

Following his release from prison, Garcia-Fuentes will have restricted access to children and the internet and will have to pay restitution to the victims in the amount of $62,500, according to the news release.
