GALVESTON (August 28, 2013)—A federal jury returned a guilty verdict Wednesday in Galveston in the trial of David Paul Roetcisoender, 72, who prosecutors say had more than 100,000 images of child porn and 2,000 child porn videos.
Roetcisoender of Pearland was found guilty of distribution of child pornography and of possession of child pornography after a two day trial.
A Pearland detective testified that pornographic images found on the Internet were traced to a computer Roetcisoender used.
A subsequent search of his home revealed thousands of additional images.
Prosecutors say he admitted that he had been downloading obscene material since the 1990s.
Roetcisoender is scheduled for sentencing on Nov. 13.
