Wichita Area Man Sentenced To 9+ Years For Distributing Child Pornography

 

WICHITA, KAN. A Wichita area man was sentenced Monday to 110 months in federal prison for trading files over the Internet with a Missouri man who was producing child pornography, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said.

Jaime Menchaca, 34, Kechi, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of distributing child pornography. In his plea, he admitted that on Sept. 13, 2013, he sent an email containing child pornography to a Missouri man.

At sentencing, prosecutors argued that Menchaca knew the Missouri man was actively producing child pornography and he was hoping to swap for access to more of it. According to court records, Menchaca’s email said: “Would love to see more of (victim’s name withheld) and anything else you may have. Here are some pics and vids I hope you enjoy.”

Grissom commended Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), the Wichita Police Department, the Kansas Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force investigated and Assistant U.S. Attorney Jason Hart for their work on the case.
