On December 20th, 2013, Joshua Matthew Miranda, 29, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Sam R. Cummings to 240 months in Prison following his guilty plea in September 2013 to one count of receiving child pornography. This announcement was made by U.S. Attorney Sarah R. Saldaña of the Northern District of Texas.

Miranda has been in custody since his arrest in the parking lot of a church in Lubbock, Texas, in early May 2013, after arranging to meet an undercover law enforcement officer who had posed as a 15-year-old girl with whom Miranda had exchanged e-mails of a sexual nature.

According to the complaint filed in the case, at the time of his arrest, Miranda had a box in his vehicle that contained numerous sex toys, ropes, gags, a blind fold, duct tape, and condoms. A federal grand jury later charged Miranda with attempted enticement of a child, production of child pornography, and receipt and possession of child pornography. He pleaded guilty to the receipt count and received the statutory maximum for that offense.

Searches of his mobile phone and computer turned up images of child pornography including a prepubescent girl. Lubbock police investigated and found the girl. Court records said, “The juvenile female said that she and Miranda had a sexual relationship from sometime around October 2011 through June 2012.”

After his arrest, a state search warrant was executed at his residence in Lubbock, and law enforcement located several images and videos of child pornography on Miranda’s computer. Miranda admitted that he downloaded from the Internet numerous child pornography images and videos, including videos of prepubescent minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

Even after Miranda has served his prison term, he will remain under federal supervision for the rest of his life.
