DALLAS — Gregorio Alexandro Landeros, 30, of Dallas, Texas, was sentenced this morning by U.S. District Judge Sidney A. Fitzwater to 210 months in federal prison, following his guilty plea to one count of receipt of child pornography, announced U.S. Attorney Erin Nealy Cox of the Northern District of Texas.

            According to the plea agreement factual resume filed in the case, in June 2015, the father of a fourteen year old minor female child, Jane Doe 1, reported that he had reviewed his daughter’s cellular telephone and noticed that a person named “Alex” had sent nude videos to the child and requested that the child send photos and videos of herself to him. Texts from “Alex” stated that he was 17 years old and that Jane Doe 1 had told “Alex” she was 15 years old. Text messages were also sent to Jane Doe 1 directing her on how to produce sexually explicit videos. Law enforcement determined that the cellular telephone number used by “Alex” belonged to Landeros.

 

            A search warrant was obtained for Landeros’ cell phone and a review of the phone revealed images of child pornography of Jane Doe 1 that Landeros had the child produce and send to him.

 

            On March 30, 2016, Landeros was arrested and consented to an interview, according to the plea agreement factual resume. Landeros admitted to using his cellular telephone to misrepresent himself as a teenage male to Jane Doe 1 and multiple other minor females in hopes of obtaining sexual images from them. Landeros solicited female minors because he felt they were the most likely to provide him with nude images. Landeros used the photographs of younger friends and random nude images from the internet to mask his identity while communicating with the children.

 

            At the time of his arrest, Landeros possessed a total of 206 images and 22 videos of child pornography on his cellular telephone.

 

The case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by U.S. Attorney’s Offices and the Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Project Safe Childhood leverages federal, state and local resources to better investigate, apprehend and prosecute individuals who sexually exploit children.  Project Safe Childhood also prioritizes identifying and rescuing victims.

            The Federal Bureau of Investigation investigated.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Shane Read prosecuted.
