Posted by Fay Arfa | Jan 21, 2020 | 0 Comments

A federal judge sentenced Daniel Patrick Diaz, 35, of Wilmington, 84 months in federal prison for possessing child pornography and distributing the sexually explicit images of children to other Internet users. Diaz pleaded guilty to four counts of receipt and distribution of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography.

            Diaz admitted in his plea agreement that he used the Internet to download and transfer numerous images and videos of child pornography to various digital devices and email accounts. In April 2017, Diaz used the internet messenger application Kik to knowingly distribute files that depicted minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct. Diaz sent the illicit images to an undercover law enforcement officer.  A federal search warrant executed in May 2017 revealed that Diaz used an email address to receive and distribute child pornography, including sadistic and masochistic content.

            In total, Diaz possessed at least 600 images of child pornography.
