A former nurse’s assistant in San Diego was sentenced to 50 years in prison Monday for sexual exploitation of a child and child pornography.

Hector Manuel Carreon, 46, was found in bed with his underwear pulled down to his ankles with a family member under the age of ten by Homeland Security Investigations in June 2012, according to U.S. Attorney Laura Duffy.

The agents who were executing a search warrant at Carreon’s home also found more than 500 pictures and 900 videos of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct, including three videos of Carreon sexually molesting two family members who appeared to be drugged.

Carreon was convicted of exploitation of a child, attempted sexual exploitation of a child and receipt and possession of child pornography in July 2013.

At his sentencing Monday, a district judge said it was “apparent” Carreon had drugged the minors.

In addition to 50 years in prison, the judge also ordered Carreon have a lifetime of supervised release and mandatory sex offender registration.
