Casselberry Resident Sentenced to 25 Years for Sexually Exploiting A Child

Orlando, Florida – U.S. District Judge Carlos E. Mendoza has sentenced Oscar Luis Burgos (32, Casselberry) to 25 years in federal prison for production and receipt of child pornography. He pleaded guilty on March 9, 2018.

According to court documents, Burgos initially met the child victim online in May 2017. Although the victim told Burgos that she was 14 years old, he still engaged her in highly sexualized online chat conversations. He also persuaded her to produce and send to him images of herself engaging in sexually explicit conduct.  At one point during their conversations, Burgos also discussed murdering the girl’s father and having sex with her next to his corpse.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Lawrence (Kansas) Police Department. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Emily C. L. Chang.

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 United States Attorneys’ Offices and the Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS), Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state, and local resources to locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who sexually exploit children, and to identify and rescue victims.
