CORPUS CHRISTI – A 22-year-old resident of Robstown has been ordered to prison following his conviction of distributing child pornography, announced U.S. Attorney Ryan K. Patrick. Trey Escareno pleaded guilty Nov. 29, 2018.
 
Today, Senior U.S. District Judge Janis Graham Jack sentenced Escareno to 170 months in prison. The sentence will be immediately followed by a lifetime term of supervised release, during which time he will have to comply with numerous requirements designed to restrict his access to children and the internet. Escareno will also be ordered to register as a sex offender.
 
The investigation into Escareno began when an undercover FBI agent entered an online chatroom and observed a user, later identified as Escareno, posting links. He had posted several items, all of which would automatically download large amounts of child pornography onto the computer of the user who clicked on them.
 
Agents later executed a search warrant in Robstown on Escareno’s residence. That resulted in the discovery of several items, including a cellular telephone on which a forensic analysis identified numerous images of child pornography. Law enforcement also uncovered evidence that Escareno had engaged in sexual contact with a minor relative.
 
He has been and will remain in custody pending transfer to a U.S. Bureau of Prisons facility to be determined in the near future.
The FBI conducted the investigation with the assistance of the Corpus Christi Police Department - Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.
 
Assistant U.S. Attorney Brittany L. Jensen prosecuted 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. For more information about Project Safe Childhood or internet safety education, please visit the DOJ website.
