A Lubbock man has been sentenced to a decade in prison for possessing child pornography.

Nineteen-year-old Tony Alvarez received the 10-year sentence Friday morning from U.S. District Judge Sam R. Cummings. This comes following his June 2012 guilty plea to one count of possessing child pornography.

A press release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office states that Alvarez used his computer to download depictions of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct, then saved several of the images onto a laptop computer and a memory stick.

The Lubbock Police Department and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations conducted the investigation.

Alvarez’ case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Steven M. Sucsy of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Lubbock.
