Omaha Man Sentenced for Receipt of Child Pornography

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

Acting United States Attorney Steven A. Russell announced that Jose Ramon Cisneros Perez, 22, was sentenced today in federal court in Omaha for receipt and attempted receipt of child pornography. The Honorable Robert F. Rossiter sentenced Cisneros to 96 months’ imprisonment. There is no parole in the federal prison system. After his release from prison, Cisneros will serve 15 years of supervised release.

In February 2020, the father of a 10-year-old girl in Kansas City, Missouri, reported to the Kansas City Police Department that his daughter had been communicating with an unknown person online who had asked the girl to send sexually explicit photos of herself. A detective in Kansas City began investigating and, pretending to be the 10-year-old child, engaged in continued conversation with the person online. The suspect requested that the girl send sexually explicit videos of herself. After determining that the suspect’s IP address tied him to a residence in Omaha, Nebraska, the detective referred the case to the Omaha FBI’s Child Exploitation Task Force. Investigators executed a search warrant at the suspect’s residence and made contact with Cisneros, who admitted to engaging in the conversation with the child in Kansas City and admitted to similar conversations with other children online. Forensic examinations of Cisneros’s electronic devices showed images of child pornography stored on the devices.

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.
