A 33-year-old Fullerton man, who was previously arrested and charged for sexual offenses involving children, was arrested Thursday after allegedly posting child sexual abuse material on the internet.
Fullerton detectives with the Los Angeles Regional Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force received a tip and began investigating the case in early September, according to Cpl. Billy Phu of the Fullerton Police Department.
They discovered “several images of children engaging in or simulating sexual acts” posted on various internet sites.
Investigators determined that Emilio Alejandro Rojas Chavez allegedly posted the photos and had been arrested in 2019 and charged with “possession of child pornography, luring and meeting a child to commit lewd acts and lewd acts upon a child,” Phu said. It was not immediately clear if he was convicted.
Chavez was arrested again about 7:40 a.m. Thursday for suspicion of possession of child sexual abuse material, also known as child pornography, according to Phu. Detectives also conducted a search warrant at his home.
Chavez is being held at the Fullerton City Jail on $120,000 bail.
