SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Pablo Ramos, 50, of Roseville, was sentenced today to 11 years in prison, to be followed by 10 years of supervised release, for distribution of child pornography, U.S. Attorney Phillip A. Talbert announced. Ramos must also register as a sex offender.

According to court documents, in September 2020, Ramos used Kik Messenger to distribute multiple files containing visual depictions of minors engaging in sexually explicit conduct. He distributed the files using the internet from his residence in Roseville.

This case was the product of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Internet Against Crimes Against Children Task Force. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Rosanne L. Rust and Kristin F. Scott prosecuted the case.

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by the United States Attorneys’ Offices and the Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state, and local resources to locate, apprehend, and prosecute those who exploit children via the internet, as well as to identify and rescue victims.
