Texas Man Charged With Posting Child Porn On Facebook

A 26-year-old Texas Man is set to appear in federal court on charges of possessing and distributing child pornography, announced Acting U.S. Attorney Jennifer B. Lowery.

A federal grand jury returned a three-count indictment against Kevin Montemayor on Oct. 19.

The indictment was unsealed on Dec. 7 upon his arrest. He is set to make his initial appearance before U.S. Magistrate Judge Diana Song Quiroga at 1:30 p.m.   

According to the charges, a person linked to an IP address in Laredo had uploaded child pornography to Facebook messenger. Law enforcement conducted a search at the residence and allegedly encountered Montemayor.

A forensic analysis of Montemayor’s seized electronic devices included more than 7,000 images and videos of child pornography, according to the charges. The images allegedly included children as young as 3.

If convicted, Montemayor faces a minimum of five and up to 20 years in federal prison.

Homeland Security Investigations conducted the investigation.
