WARNING: Details of this case are graphic. Read at your own risk.
 
A 44-year-old man from Humble, who was a fugitive from the law for over a month, has received a massive sentence following his convictions for sexual exploitation of a child as well as receipt and possession of child pornography, announced U.S. Attorney Ryan K. Patrick. Moises Valdez pleaded guilty April 4, 2018.

Today, U.S. District Judge Gray Miller handed Valdez a sentence of 360 months for the sexual exploitation of a child, otherwise known as production of child pornography. He also received 240 months for the receipt of child pornography and another 120 months for the possession of child pornography. The sentences will all run consecutively for a total of 720 months in federal prison. There is no parole in the federal system. Valdez also received a lifetime of supervised release.

Valdez came to the attention of law enforcement following an investigation which began May 22, 2015, into persons using the internet to traffic in child pornography. An FBI special agent was able to locate and identify Valdez as the owner of a computer offering to participate in the distribution and receipt of child pornography movies through a peer-to-peer network.

On Jan. 29, 2016, authorities executed a search warrant at Valdez' residence, at which time, they seized a laptop and a desktop computer located within a bedroom belonging to Valdez. A forensic review resulted in the discovery of approximately 75 images and more than 180 videos of child pornography.

Additionally, agents also found one particular video that appeared to be taken from a cellular phone which agents believed Valdez had produced. This video was of an underage female being vaginally penetrated by an adult male penis. Also depicted in the video was an adult male's fingers that can be seen spreading open the vagina of the child who appears to be sleeping throughout the sexual assault.

Agents were able to identify the bedroom as that of belonging to Valdez.

On March 8, 2016, agents contacted and interviewed Valdez' wife who identified the child depicted in the video as a minor relative who would have been four-years-old at the time of the assault. She was further able to identify body parts of Valdez that were seen in the video.

A warrant for his arrest was issued that day, but he had absconded. Authorities ultimately apprehended him April 18, 2016, upon his entry into the United States from Mexico. The investigation revealed he had fled to Mexico after he learned agents had identified him as the male in the video.

At the sentencing hearing today, the court heard evidence regarding a pattern of abuse which rendered Valdez a repeat and dangerous sex offender. The court heard that Valdez had sexually abused three other minor females in addition to the four-year-old victim from the video. These victims were either family members or were children whom Valdez acted as a father figure. One victim was as young as three-years-old when the abuse began. The total amount of abuse on these victims spanned several years. Further, one of the victims told the court that what Valdez did destroyed her family.

The FBI conducted the investigation.

Valdez has been and will remain in custody pending transfer to a U.S. Bureau of Prisons facility to be determined in the near future.

And all he gets for this is 60 years? That is bs.
 
It should be a mandatory life sentence. And general population at the worst prison we have in the US.
 
He is the reason we need a wall, and border security. To think he waltzed right into Mexico and then waltzed right back to the US when he wanted to should sicken every single American.

It should be the death penalty. He is not able to live in society anymore. So why do we have to keep him alive for 60 years... A waste of taxpayers money

We should be able to harvest his organs. If he is a donor match to anyone for any part, heart, eyes, etc. And he gets no anesthesia.

@KingwoodDotCom : This is the perfect guy to make an example of. Commit a crime like this here, we won't feed you, we'll take you in a helicopter and drop you over your homeland from at least 200 feet.
