Prison Time for Legal Immigrant Caught at Border with Child Porn

A legal immigrant from Mexico who was caught in 2013 at an international bridge on the Texas border smuggling child porn will spend more than seven years in prison after a federal judge handed down his sentence.

Daniel Frias Gomez, a 23-year-old man born in the Mexican state of Jalisco, went before U.S. District Judge George Kazen on Friday. The judge sentenced him to 87 months in federal prison and a 10-year probation for the charge of possession of child pornography. Frias had pleaded guilty to the charge on December 4, 2013, information provided to Breitbart Texas by the U.S. Attorney’s Office revealed.

Officers with U.S. Customs and Border Protection initially arrested Frias on September 27, 2013 at the Lincoln Juarez International Bridge in Laredo. The Mexican national had been traveling on a passenger bus from Jalisco where he had been visiting relatives to his home in Iowa.

During a secondary inspection, CBP officers found multiple electronic devices including memory cards and DVD’s which included variations of pornography and bestiality but officers also found 200 images of child pornography.
