Idaho man sexually assaults child, distributes video. He will spend the next 44 years in prison
An Idaho man will spend the next four decades in prison on charges of producing child pornography, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Idaho.
Hector Aguayo, of Pocatello, was sentenced to more than 44 years in prison after pleading guilty to sexual exploitation of a child and possession of child pornography, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said in a news release. The 31-year-old will also be placed on probation for 15 years after his prison term ends.
Law enforcement seized Aguayo’s iPad after someone reported it contained child pornography. After reviewing hundreds of photos and videos, law enforcement learned that Aguayo recorded himself raping a child with disabilities, according to the release. He then distributed the child’s videos on an online messaging app, the US Attorney’s Office said.
Aguayo will be transferred to Englewood Federal Correctional Institution in Colorado, according to the ruling obtained by the Idaho Statesman.
“This sentencing demonstrates our commitment to protecting the most vulnerable members of our society – our children,” U.S. Attorney Josh Horwitt said in a press release. “Children with disabilities especially need our protection, and I am proud of our law enforcement partners whose tireless efforts led to a successful prosecution.”
