Oxford Man Indicted for Trafficking in Child Pornography

PHILADELPHIA – United States Attorney William M. McSwain announced today that Jose Carrillo, 27, of Oxford, PA was indicted by a federal grand jury and charged with two counts of distribution of child pornography, one count of receipt of child pornography, and one count of possession of child pornography.

The federal indictment charges him with trafficking in and possessing more than 37,000 images and videos of pornographic images of children, toddlers, and infants on the Internet. The indictment charges the defendant with committing these crimes as recently as October 18, 2018.

If convicted, Carrillo faces a statutory maximum sentence of 80 years’ incarceration, a 5-year mandatory minimum sentence of imprisonment, 5 years up to a lifetime of supervised release, a $1,000,000 fine, a $400 special assessment, and, if found not to be indigent, an additional $20,000 special assessment. 

The case was investigated by Homeland Security Investigations.  It is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Michelle Rotella.

An indictment, information, or criminal complaint is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
