HOUSTON – A 28-year-old man from Channelview  has entered a guilty plea to the receipt and possession of child pornography, announced U.S. Attorney Ryan Patrick.

 

Lucio Banda first came to the attention of law enforcement after they found multiple images of child pornography associated with his online account.

 

Authorities conducted a search at his residence, at which time they seized Samsung Galaxy Note 3 cellular phone and a San Disk Micro SD Ultra flash drive and a San Disk Ultra Plush flash memory card. Forensic analysis ultimately uncovered 2,191 images and 251 videos contained child pornography which included a substantial number of files with minor females under the age of five. Some of the images are known victims identified through the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.  

 

At the time of the search, he admitted the child pornography was his as well as the online account he used to obtain child pornography. Today, Banda acknowledged using peer-to-peer software to search for, download and obtain child pornography. He also admitted to viewing child pornography for at least five years and that he had been doing so for at least two to three years.   

 

U.S. District Judge Kenneth Hoyt accepted the plea to day and set sentencing for June 11, 2018. At that time, Banda faces a minimum of five and up to 20 years for the receipt and a maximum of 10 years for possession of child pornography. Each convicted also carries a possible $250,000 maximum fine.

 

He was permitted to remain on bond pending that hearing.

 

The FBI conducted the investigation.

 

Assistant U.S. Attorney Julie N. Searle is prosecuting the case which was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by the United States Attorneys' Offices and the Criminal Division's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals who sexually exploit children, and to identify and rescue victims.
