Omaha Man Sentenced to 10 Years for Child Pornography Receipt and Distribution

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Nebraska

United States Attorney Steven Russell announced that Jame Rodriguez-Ramirez, 21, of Omaha, Nebraska, was sentenced today in federal court in Omaha for receipt and distribution of child pornography. United States District Judge Brian C. Buescher sentenced Rodriguez-Ramirez to 120 months’ imprisonment. There is no parole in the federal system. After his release from prison, Rodriguez-Ramirez will begin a five-year term of supervised and will be required to register as a sex offender.

Rodriguez-Ramirez has been the subject of multiple investigations resulting from NCMEC cybertips for child pornography materials. The cybertips were generated by DropBox, a file sharing service, in 2017; Instagram in 2019; and Omegle in 2021. Each cybertip resulted in a separate search of his Omaha residence and seizure of his electronic devices by investigators.

In 2017, during an investigation by Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), Rodriguez-Ramirez admitted to viewing images and videos of child pornography on his cell phone and to using Omegle to obtain links to the child pornography, stating he had shared links with others to obtain additional links. During the September of 2019 search by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Rodriguez-Ramirez’s devices were seized and forensically examined. The examination yielded 8 images containing nude or semi-nude prepubescent and pubescent minor females ranging in the approximate ages of 10-15 years old and 12 videos depicting prepubescent females, ranging from infant/toddler age to 8 years old, as well as pubescent teenage girls, approximately 12-14 years old, engaged in sexually explicit conduct and lascivious viewing of their vagina and anus.

The Nebraska State Patrol began its investigation based on a July 2021 cybertip received from Omegle, after which it learned of the earlier HSI and FBI investigations. On October 26, 2021, while forensics were still pending in the FBI case, NSP investigators searched Rodriguez-Ramirez’s residence again.  Rodriguez-Ramirez admitted to viewing images and videos using Omegle on his cell phone. Investigators also seized more devices (and iPhone and an Apple MacBook) for examination.  Forensic review revealed additional evidence of possession and distribution of child pornography on Rodriguez-Ramirez’s cell phone which occurred after the home was searched in 2019. Investigators confirmed that videos and two images from his cell phone depicted sexual conduct involving children younger than 16 years old.

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 Department of Justice. Led by United States Attorney’s Offices and the Criminal Division's 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.
