Child pornography possession is punishable by two to 10 years in prison and up to a $10,000 fine. The Webb County District Attorney’s Office will prosecute the case.
Attorney General Abbott has earned a national reputation for aggressively arresting and prosecuting online child predators. In 2003, he created the Cyber Crimes Unit, which protects children from online sexual exploitation. The Cyber Crimes Unit and the Fugitive Unit, which locates sex offenders who have violated the terms of their parole, have combined to arrest more than 2,000 sex offenders.
