Perv to plea

Good job.

As an aside I read an article the other day about a virus which hackers can use to store porn and especially kiddie porn on other folk's computers.

Watch for that to become a hotly contested issue in the years ahead.

BTW I predicted this years ago in 1999 and 2000 when we were developing my internet blocking program NetWatch Online, for sex offenders on probation in Bexar County. A program, i am proud to say which is still in use.

Man to enter plea for child porn production


An area man is set to be arraigned Monday on federal charges of possession and production of child pornography.

Burton De La Garza remained in federal custody Tuesday after he was arrested by FBI agents on Oct. 16 at The Scooter Store, according FBI Special Agent Erik Vasys of the San Antonio field office.

He was indicted by a grand jury on Nov. 4 for one count of possession of child porn and one count of production, alleging that he “did knowingly employ, use, persuade, induce, entice and coerce a minor to engage in sexually explicit conduct,” to make pornographic material.

De La Garza was an employee of The Scooter Store, and served at one time as the company’s events and celebrations manager, according to previous published reports. Company officials Tuesday said it was “personal” matter and declined to comment.

Authorities believe De La Garza used a minor to produce child porn between February 2006 and September 2007, and that he had sexually explicit images of minors in his possession from February 2006 until his arrest in October.

He faces between 15 to 30 years in prison if convicted of producing child pornography, and up to ten years in prison for possession of child pornography.

De La Garza is scheduled to be arraigned on Monday at 1:30 p.m. in federal district court at 655 E. Durango Blvd. in San Antonio.
