Omaha Man Sentenced for Receiving Child Pornography

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

United States Attorney Steven Russell announced that Antonio Olvera, 21, of Omaha, Nebraska, was sentenced today in federal court in Omaha for receipt of child pornography.  Chief United States District Judge Robert F. Rossiter, Jr. sentenced Olvera to 96 months of imprisonment.  There is no parole in the federal system.  After his release from prison, Olvera will begin a 10-year term of supervised release.

Between December 8, 2018, and August 22, 2019, Olvera uploaded 184 images of child pornography to DropBox.  Between June 16, 2020, and August 10, 2020, Olvera uploaded another 14 files containing child pornography.  Upon Olvera’s request, between June 22, 2021, and September 22, 2021, a minor sent Olvera via Snapchat images and videos of child pornography depicting the minor.  Olvera engaged in “catfishing” and posed as different individuals online when requesting that the minor send the images and videos.  

On September 22, 2021, law enforcement executed a search warrant at Olvera’s Omaha residence.  Agents obtained Olvera’s digital devices and located approximately 417 files containing child pornography.  Agents located the child pornography that Olvera had received from the minor.
