FAULKNER COUNTY MAN PLEADS GUILTY TO CHILD PORNOGRAPHY CHARGES
LITTLE ROCK – A Faulkner County man arrested last year by agents from the Attorney General’s Office has pleaded guilty to child pornography charges, Attorney General Dustin McDaniel announced today.
Raymond Intervallo, 52, of Conway pleaded guilty Monday to 10 counts of distributing, possessing or viewing matter depicting sexually explicit conduct involving a child, a class C felony. Intervallo was sentenced to 25 years in prison by Faulkner County Circuit Judge Charles Clawson.
Intervallo will be required to register as a sex offender. He is being held in the Faulkner County Detention Center awaiting transfer to the Arkansas Department of Correction.
“This is another step in the effort by our office and law enforcement agencies statewide toward preventing the exploitation of children on the Internet,” McDaniel said. “I am grateful for the work of the Cyber Crimes Unit in my office and the Faulkner County Sheriff’s Office for making sure this man will not continue to harm our most vulnerable citizens.”
Agents with McDaniel’s Cyber Crimes Unit arrested Intervallo last August after executing a search warrant at Intervallo’s residence on Bowling Lane in Conway. Investigators located multiple images of child pornography on electronic evidence seized from the residence at the time of the search warrant.
Special Agent Chad Meli began investigating Intervallo last year after suspecting that child pornography was being possessed at Intervallo's residence.
The Faulkner County Sheriff’s Office assisted in the arrest and investigation.
