Local News

SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) – A man convicted of being in possession of 25,000 images of child porn was ordered to probation during his sentencing last week.

Billy Richard Trujillo, 46, of West Jordan was arrested in May of 2020 on 15 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor after the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) received two separate cyber tip reports of Trujillo uploading files of suspected child pornography.

Police received a search warrant for the home and discovered SD cards by his bed which contained over 3,000 images of child pornography. Agents additionally discovered over 20,000 additional images and videos of child pornography on his laptop.

When Trujillo was arrested he served 22 days in jail before he bonded out.

In a plea deal, Trujillo pled guilty to two counts of felony sexual exploitation of a minor, and the other 13 counts were dismissed. His prison sentence and 364 days in jail were suspended and he was given four years probation, $8,000 in restitution, and was ordered to register as a sex offender.
