Puerto-Rico-jailNews Americas, SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico, Weds. Sept. 17, 2014: A 26-year-old man Puerto Rico will spend the next 15 years in prison followed by 10 years of supervised released, for production of child porn.

Pedro Luis Baez-Torres, of Cidra, was recently sentenced over a year after his Sept. 5, 2013 arrest at his place of work in Cayey stemming from a Puerto Rico Police Department referral which revealed he allegedly requested sexually explicit images from a 14-year-old female minor.

According to the criminal complaint, Baez-Torres obtained the victim’s Kik nickname through one of her classmates. Kik is a smartphone application that allows users to communicate by video and instant message over the Internet. During the initial conversations between Baez-Torres and the victim, Baez-Torres asked her to send him pictures of her fully clothed, but the requests turned more demanding when he began to request more sexually explicit photos.

The complaint further alleges that the victim complied with Baez-Torres’s requests and sometime between May and July she sent Baez-Torres more than 30 images of herself completely nude in various sexually explicit poses.

On Aug. 26, 2013, HSI special agents executed a federal search warrant at Baez-Torres residence in Cidra and seized his cellular phone. A preliminary forensic examination of the cellular phone revealed the presence of approximately 122 images depicting the victim in a sexually explicit manner.
