ETX man pleads guilty to child porn production

Released by the US Attorney's Office - Eastern District of Texas:

TYLER, Texas – A 29-year-old Henderson, Texas man has pleaded guilty to child pornography violations in the Eastern District of Texas, announced U.S. Attorney John M. Bales today. 

Enrique Estrada Quintana pleaded guilty to three counts of production of child pornography today before U.S. Magistrate Judge John D. Love.

According to information presented in court, on Feb. 2, 2011, a search warrant was executed at Quintana's residence in Henderson, Texas, during which several computers, cameras, and other forms of digital media were seized.  A forensic examination of the seized items revealed several thousand images of child pornography and over 10,000 videos of child pornography.  It was also determined that Quintana actually took approximately 100 pictures and 20 videos of three different minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.  Some of the images depicted prepubescent children under the age of 12 engaged in sexually explicit conduct, and some of the images involved the commission of a sexual act.  Quintana was indicted by a federal grand jury on Mar. 2, 2011.

Quintana faces at least 15 years and up to 30 years in federal prison at sentencing.  A sentencing date has not been set.

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice. Led by United States Attorneys' Offices and the Criminal Division's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS), Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the Internet, as well as to identify and rescue victims. For more information about Project Safe Childhood, please visit www.projectsafechildhood.gov.

This case is being investigated by the U.S. Secret Service, ICE/HSI, Henderson Police Department, and Longview Police Department Internet Crimes Against Children/Cyber Crimes Unit and is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Christopher T. Tortorice.

    On Monday the Associated Press released its top 25 preseason poll for college football. And for the third straight year, Texas A&M didn't make the cut. Starting fast though and moving their way up the polls in recent seasons hasn't been the problem. In fact, the Aggies, who have over a dozen East Texans on the roster, were number four in the initial playoff rankings last year.
