WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. - A 46-year-old Westchester man has been sentenced to prison time after being found guilty of possessing dozens of digital files depicting child pornography.

Westchester District Attorney Anthony Scarpino, Jr. announced on Wednesday that Port Chester resident Johnny Manjarrez has been sentenced to a term of between two and six years in state prison after being convicted by a jury of 50 felony counts of promoting an obscene sexual performance by a child.

Between Feb. 24 and Feb. 28, 2016, an investigator at the Westchester District Attorney’s Office downloaded 21 digital files depicting obscene sexual performances by children, from Manjarrez's computer via the Bit Torrent peer-to-peer file sharing network, according to the Westchester DA's office.

The investigator proceeded to use a law-enforcement specific program that allowed him to download files from a single source. In March last year, Scarpino’s investigators executed a search warrant at Manjarrez’s home and recovered computer devices, which resulted in the recovery of additional files depicting children engaged in obscene sexual performances.

Manjarrez was charged on May 6 last year and surrendered himself into police custody the following week for arraignment in Port Chester Justice Court. He was subsequently released on his own recognizance. Manjarrez is now remanded into the custody of the New York State Department of Corrections and must register as a sex offender upon completion of his sentence.
