Madera man gets 8 years in federal child-porn case | The Merced Sun-Star

A Madera man received an eight-year federal prison sentence Tuesday in U.S. District Court for distributing child pornography, the Justice Department reported.

Ernest Garza Reyes, 32, of Madera was sentenced by Judge Anthony W. Ishii.

Prosecutors said that from July 2, 2011, through Dec. 1, 2011, Reyes sent and received more than 200 email messages containing more than 2,800 images depicting minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

“The images involved the portrayal of sadistic and masochistic violence, and included depictions of prepubescent minors,” U.S. Attorney Benjamin B. Wagner said in a news release.

Reyes was charged with receiving or distributing child pornography in May 2013 and pleaded guilty in September 2014.

The case was investigated by the Central California Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and the Fresno County Sheriff’s Department.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Brian W. Enos prosecuted the case.

“Today’s sentencing is another victory in the fight against the sexual exploitation of children,” said Ray Greenlee, assistant special agent in charge for HSI Sacramento.
