Ex-Navy Man Derrick Mendez Sentenced For Downloading Child Pornography

Lubbock Active Jail Roster

An ex-Navy man will serve more than 10 years in federal prison on a child pornography conviction.

Derrick M. Mendez pleaded guilty in October 2012 to one count of receiving child pornography.

The 22-year-old Mendez was sentenced Friday to 121 months in federal prison, followed by a 10-year term of supervised release.

Mendez, while stationed at Goodfellow Air Force Base in San Angelo, downloaded numerous images and videos of child pornography using a peer-to-peer file sharing program. He specifically used search terms to locate material depicting minors engaging in sexually explicit conduct in October of 2011.

The case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, and prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Steven M. Sucsy of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Lubbock.
