Fort Myers man sentenced 6 years for distributing child porn

A U.S. District judge has sentenced a Fort Myers man to six years in federal prison for distribution of child pornography.

Judge John E. Steele sentenced Kenneth Garcia, 24, to six years in federal prison for distribution of child pornography and to forfeit his computer, which was used to commit the offense.

According to the U.S. Department of Justice press release, the FBI connected to Garcia’s computer and downloaded approximately 200 files containing depictions of child porn between Aug. 30, 2017, and Sept. 20, 2017.

A month later, a search warrant at Garcia’s residence allowed law enforcement to seize his computer. Forensic analysis of the computer would reveal about 450 videos of child porn, per the press release.

Garcia pleaded guilty in September 2018.
