A Laguna Beach man has been accused of participating in an international child pornography ring that was recently broken up through the efforts of global law enforcement, according to the U.S. attorney's office.
Anthony Jasso, 46, pleaded guilty in May to federal allegations that he traded images over the Internet and attended a Southern California club called Boy Lovers to watch child erotica. He also attended events involving children, the attorney's office stated in a news release.
Jasso, who is in custody, will be sentenced March 7, according to Thom Mrozek, spokesman for the U.S. attorney's office.
Jasso was one of five defendants who have pleaded guilty. He faces at least 15 years in prison, according to the U.S. attorney's office.
