A Bronx man has been indicted on child porn charges after he was caught with more than 500 videos and images featuring children as young as 3 years old, prosecutors said. 

Raymond Fontanez, 41, of Mott Haven, has been indicted on 1,020 counts of promoting an obscene sexual performance by a child, promoting a sexual performance by a child, possessing an obscene sexual performance by a child and possessing a sexual performance by a child in connection to videos he shared and kept on his computer, according to the Bronx district attorney’s office.

“The defendant allegedly had hundreds of disturbing, revolting videos of young children — even toddlers— engaged in sexual acts. Each of those images amounts to child abuse, and each time they are played or shared the children are re-victimized, so the cruelty never ends for them,” DA Darcel D. Clark said.
 
Investigators allegedly discovered an IP address offering to share 10 images and videos of child pornography, which was then traced to a computer in Fontanez’s apartment. Detectives obtained a search warrant and retrieved Fontanez’s laptop, which they say contained more than 500 videos and images of child pornography.

Fontanez faces 2 1/3 to 7 years in prison if convicted.
