Fort Worth, Texas - Last Friday, Domingo Castellon, 56, of Fort Worth was sentenced by U.S. District Judge John McBryde to 19 years and seven months in a federal prison. Castellon was convicted in March after pleading guilty to one count of possession of a visual image showing a minor in an explicit sexual act, reported to U.S. Attorney Sarah R. Saldaña of the Northern District of Texas.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Aisha Saleem also from the Northern District of Texas, prosecuted the case, according to Saldaña.
On January 23, Fort Worth police arrested Castellon for possession of drug paraphernalia. During booking and processing at the police station, officers discovered three thumb drives in Castellon's front pants pocket. When officers opened the thumb drives in a computer, they found at least 2,000 images and multiple videos of child porno downloaded on them.
