Roseville and Rocklin Men Indicted on Child Porn Charges
A federal grand jury returned a one-count indictment charging Paul Ross Pacini, 45, of Rocklin, with receiving images of child pornography between December 28, 2009 and October 13, 2013. At his arraignment on February 12, 2014, Pacini pleaded not guilty. He is in custody, and his next court date is March 11, 2014.
Robert Jones, 49, of Roseville, was indicted for receiving images of child pornography between October 23, 2011 and October 27, 2011. Jones pleaded not guilty at his arraignment on February 18, 2014. He was released on $50,000 bond.
The maximum statutory penalty for each violation of distributing or receiving child pornography is 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. A conviction for the violation would also carry a mandatory minimum term of five years in prison. The actual sentence, however, will be determined at the discretion of the court after consideration of any applicable statutory factors and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, which take into account a number of variables.
The charges in the indictments are only allegations; each defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
These cases were brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by the United States Attorneys' Offices and the Criminal Division's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state, and local resources to locate, apprehend, and prosecute those who sexually exploit children and to identify and rescue victims.
