LOS ANGELES, Calif. – A former Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) employee was sentenced today for distributing child pornography.
The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office said that on Thursday, February 28, 2019, Carlos Enrique Castillo, 55, of Los Angeles, appeared in court to be sentenced to a 2-year suspended sentence and five years of felony probation. He will also be required to register as a sex offender for life and to attend 52-week sex offender counseling. Castillo will also be subject to search and seizure of electronic devices and data.
The sentence followed a February 5, 2019, no contest plea to six felony counts including – five felony counts of distribution of obscene matter and one felony count of possession of more than 600 images of child or youth pornography in an open plea to the court. An open plea means a sentence was not negotiated with the District Attorney’s Office. Castillo according to court records, was also found to be in possession of videos, and other child pornography.
Castillo allegedly sent files containing child pornography via the internet from October 2017 to March 2018. At the time the crimes were committed, Castillo was a DCFS employee.
