Antonio Sanes

CHRISTIANSTED – A 45-year-old St. Croix man pleaded guilty in federal court today to possessing child pornography and now faces a possible 10-year prison term, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.

Antonio Sanes Carmona made that plea before U.S. Magistrate Judge George Cannon, Jr., at the U.S. District Court in Golden Rock, U.S. Attorney Ronald Sharpe said.

His sentencing is scheduled for April 20, 2017, Sharpe said.

According to the plea agreement filed with the court, on August 17, 2016, Sanes Carmona was part of a peer-to-peer network on the Internet where he used his desktop computer to possess 51 images of child pornography.

The images showed minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct with adults and other minors.

Sanes Carmona faces a term of imprisonment of not more than 10 years and a fine of not more than $250,000. He has been detained since August 19, 2016.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office said that Sanes Carmona used to work for Ranger American.

The case was investigated by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI).

It was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Rhonda Williams-Henry.
