Man in Texas had over 250 files of child porn, sentenced to 15 years



MCALLEN, TexasValley center) – A man who authorities say was living illegally in Palmview, Texas, has been sentenced to federal prison after admitting to downloading more than 250 files of child pornography.

Jose Ricardo Zamora-Ibarra, 35, was sentenced Monday to 15 years in prison for possession of child pornography, according to a news release from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

During the investigation, Homeland Security found Zamora Ibarra’s laptop and external hard drive.

An examination of the files “revealed videos and images of minors performing sexual acts,” he said.

Zamora-Ibarra placed the images on his devices in folders labeled “Sex without a teenage boy” and “Sex without a teenage girl.”

According to the release, Zamora-Ibarra does not have U.S. citizenship and has been deported from the U.S. after being charged with child sexual abuse. Then he entered the country illegally.

Zamora-Ibarra is expected to face impeachment proceedings after his sentence.
