Three Killeen-area individuals will be spending at least the next 20 years in prison for their involvement in the making of and distribution of child pornography.
27-year old Sarah Rashelle Almaguer and 27-year-old Christopher Almaguer were each sentenced to 60 years in federal prison for sexually assaulting potentially 25 minors, including multiple infants, as well as producing child pornography in Central Texas.
Christopher’s brother, 25-year-old Paul Perez, Jr. was also sentenced to 20 years for receipt of child pornography.
United States District Judge Alan D. Albright also ordered the Almaguers to each pay $10,000 to the Justice Victims of Trafficking Fund and to be placed on supervised release for the remainder of their lives after completing their time in prison.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Texas, the U.S. Secret Service, the Texas Attorney General’s Office, the Temple Police Department and the Killeen Police Department worked collaboratively on this case.
The Almaguers were arrested last October by Attorney General Paxton’s Child Exploitation Unit and admitted to recording and uploading explicit videos of themselves sexually assaulting children as young as eight months old. The Almaguers and Perez have remained in custody since their arrest.
If you believe your child was sexually abused by any of the three call 800-843-5678.
