FRESNO, Calif. — David Jahve Nin, 40, of Salida, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Lawrence J. O’Neill to 16 years and eight months in prison for receiving child pornography, U.S. Attorney McGregor W. Scott announced.

According to court documents, from approximately October 2014 through approximately July 2017, in Stanislaus County, Nin was found to have received through the internet over 200 videos of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct. The videos also involved the portrayal of sadistic, masochistic, and other depictions of violence, and included depictions of minors as young as toddlers being sexually abused.

This case was the product of an investigation by both the Stockton, California and Phoenix, Arizona Offices of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI). Assistant U.S. Attorney Brian W. Enos prosecuted the case.

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by the United States Attorneys’ Offices and the Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state, and local resources to locate, apprehend, and prosecute those who sexually exploit children, and to identify and rescue victims.
