On September 30, 2019 Robson Gustavo Morales Santos, 31, was sentenced to 96 months in prison on child pornography charges. Santos was also sentenced to a lifetime of supervised release and was ordered to register as a sex offender.
Santos is a citizen of Guatemala and he was residing illegally in the United States.
Law enforcement received a cyber tip that Santos was uploading child pornography to a cloud application. A forensic analysis of Santos’ cell phone, and a subsequent search of his cloud account by law enforcement revealed that Santos possessed more than 600 videos depicting the sexual abuse of children, some of whom were prepubescent minors as young as infants.
Santos pleaded guilty on April 29, 2019, to receiving child pornography.
