Richard G. Frohling, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, announced that on June 22, 2022, Adan Corona-Fuentes (age: 45), formerly of Grand Chute, Wisconsin, was sentenced to a 180-month term of imprisonment for production of child pornography. That term of imprisonment will be followed by an additional 60 months of supervised release.
The information presented at sentencing showed that Corona-Fuentes, an undocumented noncitizen, impersonated a juvenile male on a social media platform and convinced underage females from Texas, Indiana, Illinois, and elsewhere to send him sexually explicit photographs and videos. When Corona-Fuentes’ phone was searched by law enforcement, they located hidden camera footage of naked, underage children that Corona-Fuentes produced in Grand Chute, Wisconsin. In pronouncing sentence, Judge Griesbach emphasized that Corona-Fuentes’ conduct robbed children of their innocence.
This case was investigated by the Grand Chute Police Department and was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Alexander E. Duros.
This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse launched in May 2006, by the U.S. Department of Justice. Led by U.S. Attorneys’ Offices and the Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS), Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the Internet, as well as to identify and rescue victims.
