View Comments

FORT WORTH (AP) – A 56-year-old man has pleaded guilty to a federal child pornography charge after officers recovered three thumb drives containing tens of thousands of sexually explicit images.

Domingo Castellon was being booked into jail Jan. 23 on a drug paraphernalia possession charge. While at the jail, officers retrieved thumb drives from his front pants pocket containing 45 still images and movies of child porn. Authorities say Castellon acknowledged that the thumb drives were his. The desktop computer he used to acquire the images was seized during a search of his Fort Worth home.

Castellon pleaded guilty Friday to one count of possessing visual depictions of a minor engaged in sexually explicit conduct. Sentencing is set for June 15. He could receive 20 years in prison.
