A Del Rio man was sentenced today to 20 years in prison for sexual exploitation of a child, followed by eight years of supervision upon release, and ordered to pay a fine of $10,000.
According to court documents, between December 1, 2019, and February 19, 2020, Trever Lloyd Sexton, 29, caused a child victim to engage in sexually explicit conduct to produce child pornography. Sexton also placed a hidden camera in the child’s bathroom, which recorded the victim showering. Forensic analysis of Sexton’s phone revealed a video and photos of himself sexually molesting the child victim along with 37 images depicting child sexual abuse material of other prepubescent children.
“Thanks to the agents of HSI for helping us get another pedophile behind bars and out of our neighborhoods,” said U.S. Attorney Jaime Esparza. “We will continue to work with our law enforcement partners to take predators off the streets.”
“With today’s sentencing, HSI has removed a dangerous child predator from the community,” said Special Agent in Charge, Craig Larrabee, HSI San Antonio. “Preventing and investigating crimes against children is a high priority for HSI. We will continue to dedicate law enforcement resources to identify and bring to justice child predators who traumatize and victimize children."
HSI investigated the case.
