Guam resident Galileo Cacapit Cruz was sentenced last week in the U.S. District Court for Guam to six and a half years in prison for possession of child pornography.
According to Alicia A.G. Limtiaco, U.S. Attorney for the Districts of Guam and the Northern Mariana Islands, Cruz used his personal computer to download 20 movies containing child pornography. These movies of child pornography depict children, as young as 10 years old, being subject to sexual abuse, rape, torture and bondage.
Limtiaco commends the investigative efforts of the Federal Bureau of Investigations and the Air Force Office of Special Investigations for their work on this case.
Limtiaco noted that this prosecution is part of the U.S. Department of Justice's Project Safe Childhood Initiative, a nationwide commitment to protect children from sexual predators, producers and possessors of child pornography, as well as computer facilitated offenses.
Cruz will be made to register as a sexual offender with the Guam Sex Offender Registry.
The case was prosecuted by assistant U.S. attorney Rosetta San Nicolas. (USAO)
