According to court documents and evidence presented during the trial and sentencing hearing, Rodriguez Fernandez hid a webcam in the victim’s bathroom and recorded sexually explicit videos of the child. He also used an online file-sharing program to download and view child pornography. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement Cybercrimes Task Force identified Rodriguez Fernandez after he had shared child pornography through a file-sharing program.

During the execution of a search warrant at Rodriguez Fernandez’s residence, agents recovered several electronic devices containing 160 images and 6 videos depicting the sexual abuse and exploitation of young children and teens. The agents also located a webcam that Rodriguez Fernandez had concealed behind an electrical outlet plate across from the toilet in the 14-year-old’s bathroom. Rodriguez Fernandez ran the camera’s USB cord through the bathroom wall to his office, where he had attached it to his computer. Rodriguez Fernandez recorded and saved the illicit videos of the child on his computer.

The court also ordered Rodriguez Fernandez to forfeit the electronic devices that he had used to commit the offenses.
