Texas Man Posing As A Young Girl Gets 20 Years For Child Porn

A Texas man was sentenced Tuesday to 20 years in prison for possession of child pornography.

According to court documents, Enrique Roman Martinez Jr., 35, pretended to be a young girl on a social media chat platform who befriended a 10-year-old minor in another state.

Martinez also pretended to be a police officer to intimidate the minor.  Through manipulation and coercion, Martinez convinced the child to create sexually explicit images and to send those images to Martinez.

“Child predators will go to extraordinary lengths to exploit and manipulate our children,” said U.S. Attorney Ashley C. Hoff.  “They belong behind bars, and we will continue to work to put them there.”

“The FBI is committed to protecting children, as they the most vulnerable members of our society,” said Special Agent in Charge Christopher Combs, FBI San Antonio Division. “Those who would harm them will face serious consequences and will be held accountable for their actions.”

On April 26, 2021, Martinez pleaded guilty to one count of possession of child pornography.

Martinez has remained in federal custody since his arrest on July 2, 2018.

The FBI investigated the case. Assistant U.S. Attorney Tracy Thompson prosecuted the case.
