Seven-Year Federal Prison Sentence for Man’s Child-Porn Distribution

LOS ANGELES – Homeland Security Investigators, in tandem with the Justice Department’s ongoing initiative to combat child exploitation crimes, brought down another child-porn distributor and put him away for 84 months.

Part of Project Safe Childhood, the investigation targeted Daniel Patrick Diaz (35) of Wilmington for possessing child pornography and distributing sexually-explicit images of children to other Internet users.

The Department of Justice U.S. Attorney’s Office of the Central District of California announced that the South Bay perpetrator’s plea agreement admitted that he’d utilized internet delivery of numerous images and videos to email accounts and various digital devices.

Additionally, a law enforcement officer was the recipient of Diaz’s downloads and transfers of those illicit images in April 2017. A May 2017 federal search warrant revealed that Diaz’s email address received and distributed child pornography of various content, including sadism and masochism.

Over 600 images were found. Assistant United States Attorney Joseph D. Axelrad of the Violent and Organized Crime Section prosecuted the crimes.

“The prolific nature of [Diaz’s] fascination with child pornography, including the types of content he possessed, shared, and distributed, is troubling,” the prosecution wrote in its sentencing memorandum, which notes that “his trading, sharing, possession, and distribution of these image and videos only served to continue the harm suffered by the victims.”

United States District Judge S. James Otero sentenced Diaz on 01/21/2020 to seven years in federal prison for the July 2019 guilty plea of four counts of receipt and distribution of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography.
