O.C. man sentenced in child porn case

October 7, 2010 |  5:26 pm

A 24-year-old Orange County man was sentenced Thursday for possessing child pornography and annoying a 12-year-old girl at the Stanton Public Library, authorities said.

Alejandro Lorenzo Contreras, a Stanton resident, was sentenced to one year in jail, three years’ formal probation and is required to register as a sex offender, the Orange County district attorney's office sad.
 
Contreras pleaded guilty last month to a court offer to one misdemeanor count of possession of child pornography and one misdemeanor count of child annoyance, the Orange County district attorney's office said.

Prosecutors said Contreras followed three girls into the Stanton library on July 13 and caused them to feel uncomfortable. He followed them outside and asked the 12-year-old to take a cellphone photo of herself and send it to his cellphone, according to prosecutors.

Contreras was arrested after the girl told authorities. He had a pornographic photo of another child on his cellphone, prosecutors said.
