Mexico City, Mexico - On Friday, the Mexican Attorney General's Office (PGR) reported that Mauro Rodrigo Hernández Torres, 24, aka, "Maclicio" from the city of Valles, San Luis Potosi, Mexico had been sentenced to 29 years in a federal mexican prison for producing, transmitting and possession of child pornography. Torres was sentenced on May 6, 2012 and was ordered to pay a fine of $15,755 ($207,900 pesos).
A joint task force investigation was conducted by Mexico's Secretariat of Public Security (SSP), the Mexican Attorney General's Office, with the assistance of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI).
A tip from the U.S. led the PGR and the mexican federal police to issued a warrant for Torres on November 22, 2011. On December 27, 2011, federal police and U.S.ICE agents working at a U.S. Embassy in Mexico arrested Torres, searched his residence and found images of child porno in his computer. Authorities discovered that Torres had also sexually abused two children and had taken images of them while being abused. Torres took advantage of the children when the parents were working. He provided video games to lure the children to his residence and paid them between $5 to $20 for sex and to take videos of them while performing sex acts, according to the criminal complaint.
A news release from ICE reported that on August 31, 2011, special agents assigned to HSI Mexico City received information from the Cyber Tip Line of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) regarding an e-mail account that had been transmitting child pornography and using cloud technology to store the images. After obtaining the relevant information from the Internet service provider based in the United States, HSI provided this data to SSP's cyber unit, which was able to determine that Torres was the account subscriber.

Mauro Rodrigo Hernández Torres, 24, of ciudad Valles in the state of San Luis Potosi, Mexico posed in front of his computer in 2009. Torres used the alias Maclicio on the Internet to play games and has a Facebook account, which is still on the Internet and last entry was made in February.
