SAN ANTONIO, Texas — Yesterday, FBi agents executed a search warrant at a San Antonio man's residence — seizing his cell phone and arresting him on charges of distributing child pornography.
62-year-old Juan Benavidez of San Antonio was arrested after federal investigators raided his San Antonio residence.
A federal criminal complaint charges Benavidez with one count of distributing child pornography.
"A preliminary examination of the iPhone revealed the presence of multiple image files depicting minors engaged in sexually explicit activity as well as the use of the mobile messaging application named Kik to receive and distribute files depicting child pornography between April and June of this year," read a statement from the U.S. Attorney's Office.
Benavidez will remain in federal custody pending a detention hearing scheduled for next week.
If convicted, Benavidez faces between five and 20 years in federal prison.
