Richard Mendoza of Lubbock Sentenced for Downloading Child Pornography
A Lubbock man has been sentenced for downloading child pornography from the internet.
Richard Mendoza was sentenced to more than 11 years in federal prison Friday morning, and also received a 15-year term of supervised release.
This comes following his October 2012 guilty plea to one count of receipt of child pornography.
Mendoza intentionally downloaded a video file depicting a female child under the age of 18 engaged in sexually explicit conduct in January 2012. He has been in police custody since his arrest in August of 2012.
The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Steven M. Sucsy with the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Lubbock.
