Glendale Man Sentenced to 120 Months for Distribution of Child Pornography

     PHOENIX – Last week, Ronald Amaguin Dallas, 28, of Glendale, Ariz., was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Steven P. Logan to 120 months’ imprisonment.  Dallas had previously pleaded guilty to distributing child pornography. 

     Over the course of at least a year, Dallas downloaded and distributed child pornography through bit torrent file sharing.  After undercover agents downloaded child pornography from Dallas’s IP address, they obtained a warrant to search his home.  During the search, agents seized several devices containing video files and hundreds of images depicting child pornography. 

     This investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  The prosecution was handled by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Brandon M. Brown and Gayle Helart.
