The U-S Attorney's office in Peoria says a Bloomington man has been indicted for child pornography. Prosecutors say Pablo Valencia-Lopez is either 26 or 28 years old and uses at least one alias. Lopez, of the 300 block of Mecherle (muh-HURL) Drive was arrested September 26th. The indictment is one count of receiving child pornography in August. The Secret Service and Bloomington Police investigated the case as part of project Safe Childhood, a crackdown on porn that has been going on for six years. Authorities want Valencia-Lopez to forfeit computers as well. If he is convicted, the sentence would be a minimum of five to twenty years.
