Jose Cifuentes was adjudicated guilty and sentenced to 7 years in prison followed by 10 years of probation and designated a Sex Offender for life, for 4 counts of Possession of Child Pornography.
In 2021, a tip was provided to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, about child pornography being stored on a device linked to a Bonita Springs internet address.
The investigation led to a search warrant being served at the home of the defendant. Child pornography was found on multiple devices recovered from the home.
Assistant State Attorney Lindsay Scott Garza prosecuted the case.
