San Antonio Man Sentenced to 30 Years for Producing Child Pornography

SAN ANTONIO – Bobby Dominguez, 35, of San Antonio was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge David A. Ezra to 30 years in prison for production of child sexual abuse material.  According to court documents, Dominguez produced images of a six-year-old child performing sexual acts and sent those images over the internet.

On November 19, 2020, Dominguez pleaded guilty to one count of production of child pornography.  He has been in federal custody since his arrest on December 27, 2018.

“Judge Ezra sentenced Dominguez to the statutory maximum sentence in this case, 30 years without parole” said U.S. Attorney Ashley C. Hoff.  “The judge’s comments on how life-altering Dominguez’s callous actions are for the young victim are true.  I am thankful this predator is behind bars and the healing process can begin for this child.”

“The FBI is committed to protecting children from sexual abuse and exploitation,” said FBI San Antonio Special Agent in Charge Oliver E. Rich Jr. “This is a horrific crime and we will do everything in our power to hold perpetrators accountable for these heinous acts. Thanks to the hard work of our law enforcement partners and the FBI Child Exploitation Task Force, this individual is now off the streets.”

The FBI investigated the case.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Tracy Thompson prosecuted the case.

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 U.S. Attorneys’ Offices and 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.
