Bronx Man Indicted for Possessing and Promoting Child Porn

A Bronx man has been indicted on over 1,000 counts of child pornography possession and promotion yesterday in connection with video content he retained and distributed on his computer depicting the sexual abuse of children as young as 3 years old.

According to the investigation, New York Police Department detectives traced offers to share explicit content involving children to a laptop belonging to Raymond Fontanez, 41. After obtaining a search warrant, the laptop was retrieved where over 500 explicit images and video of children were found.

“The defendant allegedly had hundreds of disturbing, revolting videos of young children—even toddlers—engaged in sexual acts. Each of those images amounts to child abuse, and each time they are played or shared the children are re-victimized, so the cruelty never ends for them,” said District Attorney Darcel D. Clark.

Fontanez is due back in court in late November faces a maximum of 7 years in prison if convicted.
