LUBBOCK, Texas — 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. Saldaña 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.
