Sarabia was found guilty Feb. 26, 2020, on two counts of receipt of child pornography and two counts of possession of child pornography. Evidence presented at his trial revealed that the FBI seized thousands of child pornography files from Sarabia between August 2017 and November 2017, officials said.

On Nov. 30, 2017, FBI agents executed a search warrant at Sarabia’s residence and seized two cellphones.

A forensic search of the phones revealed a file sharing application and the presence of more than 1,000 images depicting prepubescent minors engaged in sexually explicit activity, officials said.
