In San Antonio, 55-year-old Victor Zamarron, a former civilian contractor at Brooks Army Medical Center, was sentenced to 210 months in federal prison, followed by 50 years of supervised release, for downloading child pornography, announced United States Attorney Robert Pitman and Federal Bureau of Investigation Special Agent in Charge Armando Fernandez, San Antonio Division.

In September 2012, a routine information technology inspection revealed that Zamarron was downloading and viewing child pornography through the government computer system. A subsequent search warrant executed by FBI agents at the defendant’s residence resulted in the seizure of two computers. A forensics examination of those computers revealed the presence of more than 30,000 images depicting child pornography. On June 24, 2013, Zamarron pleaded guilty to one count of receipt of child pornography.

This investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, together with the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Division at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio. Assistant United States Attorney Tracy Thompson prosecuted this case on behalf of the government.
