Corpus Christi Man Sentenced in Child Porn Production Case

CORPUS CHRISTI–A Corpus Christi man gets sentenced to more than 15 years in federal prison Tuesday for his involvement in the production of child pornography.

David Hernandez, 29, of Corpus Christi, Texas, has been sentenced to 210 months in prison following his conviction for production of child pornography, United States Attorney Kenneth Magidson announced today. Hernandez pleaded guilty March 1, 2012.
 
Senior United States District Judge Hayden Head handed David Hernandez, 29,  a 17 ½ year sentence and ordered he serve the rest of his life on supervised release following completion of that prison term.
 
At the sentencing hearing, additional evidence was presented, including the fact that Hernandez had victimized the child over several years. The federal judge also ordered he pay restitution in the amount of $10,000 to the victim and $9,886 to the father of the victim of the child pornography which Hernandez produced.
 
The case was started in  March 12 of last year when a concerned citizen reported a sexual assault in progress at the Los Encinos Elementary School in Corpus Christi. When officers with CCPD arrived at the location, they observed Hernandez sexually assaulting a 13-year-old boy.
 
When police approached Hernandez, he covered himself and attempted to walk away. Hernandez was arrested and found to be possession of a cell phone, which was turned over to CCPS’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC).
 
A search of that cell phone led to the discovery of several videos depicting Hernandez sexually assaulting the boy. Further forensic analysis revealed that the videos contained therein were made on the phone by Hernandez between December 2010 and March 2011.
 
Hernandez has been in custody since his arrest and he will remain there until he is transferred to a federal prison location.
