Rogers man headed to federal prison for 70-month on child pornography conviction


Martin Rosales-Rodriguez, age 20, of Rogers was sentenced today to 70 months in federal prison followed by ten years of supervised release on one count of Receipt of Child Pornography.


According to court records, in March 2018, members of the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force identified an IP address that was using a file sharing network to obtain suspected child pornography files. 


The IP address was traced to Rosales-Rodriguez’s residence in Rogers. On April 16, 2019, a federal search warrant was executed at Rosales-Rodriguez’s residence.  Law enforcement confiscated and later searched digital devices from the residence and discovered images of child pornography.


Rosales-Rodriguez was indicted in June of 2019 and entered a guilty plea in October of 2019. 


The Honorable Timothy L. Brooks, United States District Judge, presided over the sentencing hearing in the United States District Court in Fayetteville.


This case was investigated by the Department of Homeland Security and the Northwest Arkansas Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force.  Assistant United States Attorney Amy Driver prosecuted the case for the United States.
