A San Antonio man was sentenced to 40 years in prison on charges he sexually assaulted a young child.

Brandon Garza, 23, pled guilty to a charge of aggravated sexual assault of a child Tuesday. Investigators in North Carolina and Texas discovered Garza was using the KIK messenger to share images and videos of child sexual abuse. A tip through the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children said Garza had the materials on his Google account. Investigators traced the accounts to Garza, who was arrested in May of 2021.

“As awful as it is for anyone to share these images, this defendant went a step further by documenting his abuse of a child and then sharing it with others. This case should serve as a reminder to anyone who uses these sites to immediately report anything that does not look or seem right. Tips to the apps or law enforcement help us to stop these offenders from continuing to cause harm to children,” said Bexar County District Attorney Joe Gonzales.

Assistant District Attorney Jordan Brown of the Public Integrity and Cyber Crime Division prosecuted this case in the 227th District Court. The Texas Attorney General’s Child Exploitation Unit investigated the crimes.
