Reston Man Sentenced in Child Porn Case

Alex Ernesto Calderon Velasquez/FBI photo A Reston man was sentenced on Friday to 16 years in prison for child pornography and failure to appear in court.

Alex Ernesto Calderon Velasquez, 27, pleaded guilty on July 25. Court documents said Calderon Velasquez used his computer to communicate with a 14-year-old girl in Texas. He then extorted the victim to strip and engage in sexual activity over Skype chats, which Calderon Velasquez recorded and kept on his computer along with other child pornography, U.S. Justice Department authorities said in a press release.

In 2011, Calderon Velasquez persuaded and enticed another 14-year-old girl in Arizona to engage in sexually explicit conduct for the purposes of producing video recordings, which the defendant then stored on his laptop computer, authorities said.

Calderon Velasquez was scheduled to plead guilty to production of child pornography on May 24.  On the morning of his guilty plea hearing, he fled. He was captured June 7 in Texas.
