MADISON, WIS. – In an indictment returned yesterday by a federal grand jury sitting in Madison, Wisconsin, a Beloit, Wisconsin man is charged with two counts of using minors to produce child pornography.  The indictment is announced by Timothy M.

The indictment charges Misael Dominguez-Adorno, 24, with using two minors to engage in sexually explicit conduct for the purpose of producing a visual depiction of the conduct.  The indictment alleges that he created the videos in October 2020 and March 2022. 

Dominguez-Adorno was arrested in Beloit today. He will make an initial appearance in U.S. District Court in Madison today.

If convicted, Dominguez-Adorno faces a mandatory minimum penalty of 15 years and a maximum of 30 years in federal prison on each charge.  The charges against him are the result of an investigation by the Beloit Police Department, Federal Bureau of Investigation, and Wisconsin Department of Justice Division of Criminal Investigation.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Elizabeth Altman is handling the prosecution.

You are advised that a charge is merely an accusation and that a defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
