SACRAMENTO, Calif. — John K. Cabrera, 35, of Sacramento, was sentenced today by United States District Judge Garland E. Burrell Jr. to over seven years in prison for distribution of child pornography, United States Attorney Phillip A. Talbert announced.


According to court documents, between April 24, 2014, and April 27, 2014, Cabrera used the internet to transmit images of prepubescent children engaged in sexually explicit conduct with another person.


This case was the product of an investigation by the Sacramento Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force, a federally and state-funded task force managed by the Sacramento Sheriff’s Department with agents from federal, state, and local agencies. The Sacramento ICAC investigates online child exploitation crimes, including child pornography, enticement, and sex trafficking. Assistant United States Attorney Rosanne Rust 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 sexually exploit children, and to identify and rescue victims.
