NEWARK, N.J. – A Hudson County, New Jersey, man was sentenced today to 70 months in prison for soliciting victims online to send images and videos of child sexual abuse and possessing child pornography, U.S. Attorney Philip R. Sellinger announced.
Erick Solis, 25, previously pleaded guilty before retired U.S. District Judge Kevin McNulty to an information charging him with one count of solicitation of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography. U.S. District Judge Julien X. Neals imposed the sentence today in Newark federal court.
According to the documents filed in this case and statements made in court:
From July 2020 to February 2021, Solis used a social media application to engage victims in sexually explicit conversations. Solis requested that both minor victims take sexually explicit photographs and videos of themselves and send them to him.
Every criminal must be punished and every innocent must get justice.
