LUBBOCK, Texas â€” Jacob Ray Albarado, 20, of Big Spring, Texas, was sentenced Friday morning by U.S. District Judge Sam R. Cummings to 10 years in federal prison and a 15-year term of supervised release, following his guilty plea in June 2013 to one count of possession of child pornography.
U.S. Attorney Sarah R. SaldaÃ±a of the Northern District of Texas made theannouncement.
Albarado has been in custody since his arrest in March 2013 on a federal indictment alleging possession and production of child pornography and attempted enticement of a child.
According to documents filed in the case, after befriending a minor female, Albarado communicated with her through the use of his cell phone for more than one year. In late 2012, the female began a dating relationship with Albarado and ran away from her home to his apartment in Big Spring.
Albarado and the girl agreed to produce a video depicting the two of them engaged in sexually explicit conduct. Albarado then held her cell phone and produced a video of her while she engaged in sexually explicit conduct with Albarado.
