Pfizer Exec Arrested on Child Porn Charges in Puerto Rico

by on November 25, 2013

48-year-old Reinaldo Diaz Camacho, an executive at Pfizer Pharmaceuticals in Puerto Rico, was arrested in May after federal authorities discovered an inappropriate relationship between him and a 16-year-old boy.

Reportedly, the feds got involved after the boy’s mother became aware of sexually explicit conversations between her son and Camacho via Facebook and text messages. After a federal agent began posing as the teen on Facebook, Camacho allegedly asked the boy to send nude pictures of himself.

Child Pornography Charges in Arizona

According to A.R.S. 13-3553, it is illegal for anyone to record, film, develop, photograph, duplicate, receive, sell, distribute, electronically transmit, exhibit, transport, exchange, or possess any visual depiction in which a  minor is engaged in exploitative exhibition or other sexual conduct.

Anyone who violates the above statute is guilty of a class 2 felony in Arizona.

Soliciting Child Porn in Arizona

As was the case in the story above, many offenders may solicit child pornography but may not actually receive or possess it before they are arrested and charged with a crime. A person in this situation may either be charged with sexual exploitation of a minor or they may be charged with conspiracy to receive or possess child pornography.

Because Arizona’s laws regarding child pornography basically make any interaction or involvement illegal, it would be hard to convince a judge or a jury of a defendant’s innocence simply because they never received the child porn if there is enough evidence to prove that they indeed solicited it.
