Dallas Man Sentenced To 15 Years In Federal Prison On Child Pornography Conviction
Defendant to Be Deported Following Incarceration
DALLAS — Eulises Abraham Nava-Romero, 26, was sentenced this morning by U.S. District Judge Ed Kinkeade to 180 months (15 years) in federal prison and a lifetime of supervised release, following his guilty plea in February 2013 to one count of receipt of child pornography, announced U.S. Attorney Sarah R. Saldaña of the Northern District of Texas.
Nava-Romero has been in federal custody since his arrest in January 2013 on a related federal felony criminal complaint following the execution of a federal search warrant at his home in Dallas by special agents with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI). He will be referred for deportation proceedings following his incarceration.
According to documents filed in the case, Nava-Romero admitted knowingly downloading and receiving images of child pornography from the Internet onto his home computer in March and September 2012.
The case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative, which was launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice, to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by U.S. Attorney’s Offices and the Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals, who sexually exploit children, and identify and rescue victims.
