Retired Attorney Sentenced in Child Porn Case

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The 71-year-old Santa Fe man was sentenced Wednesday in federal court to five years in prison

A 71-year-old retired attorney who lives in Santa Fe was sentenced Wednesday to five years in prison for a federal child pornography conviction, the U.S. Attorney’s Office announced.

Robert A Warren appeared before Chief U.S. District Judge Bruce D. Black in Santa Fe for sentencing, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office. Black also ordered that Warren pay a $50,000 fine and said that after Warren completes his prison sentence, he will be placed on supervised release for five years and be required to register as a sex offender.

The news release said Warren was charged in a superseding indictment on May 11, 2010, with five counts of receipt of child pornography and two counts of possession of child pornography. He pleaded guilty on Aug. 30, 2010, under a plea agreement to the second count in the indictment, a receipt of child pornography charge.

The other six counts were dismissed Wednesday by Black after he sentenced Warren Wednesday, the news release said.

Warren, who has been in federal custody since entering his guilty plea, specifically admitted in his plea agreement to receiving a three minute and 15 second video depicting an adult male performing sexual acts on a young prepubescent female, the news release said.

The news release also said that according to the plea agreement, FBI special agents who executed a search warrant at Warren’s residence on June 18, 2008, recovered multiple computers and computer-related media such as hard drives, compact disks and printed images that contained visual depictions of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct (child pornography).

The plea agreement indicates that forensic examination of Warren’s computers and computer media uncovered more than 2,600 images and 26 videos of child pornography, the news release said.
