Sacramento man charged with attempting to produce child porn

A federal grand jury has indicted a Sacramento man on child pornography charges, according to the US. Attorney’s Office in Sacramento.

The four-count indictment against Robert Charles Chavez, 29, includes a count of attempted production of child porn and three counts of receiving child porn.

Chavez is alleged to have offered a person $66 to sexually abuse a child and allow him to watch the abuse via webcam in January 2014. Court documents also allege that Chavez used the internet to download images of prepubescent children in sexually explicit conduct.

The case was investigated by the Sacramento Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, which is managed by the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department.
