2020/4/22

LANSING, MICH. An investigation conducted by the Michigan State Police (MSP) Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force and the Ingham County Probation Department has resulted in the arrest of a man from Lansing. Pedro Guevara-Garcia, 19, was arrested and arraigned Tuesday, April 21, in Ingham County.

The investigation began while Guevara-Garcia was already on probation for a previous case involving suspected child sexually abusive material (CSAM). A residence check of the home where Guevara-Garcia was residing in Lansing resulted in locating an internet capable device and new evidence of CSAM.

Guevara-Garcia has been charged with one count of aggravated child sexually abusive material [MCL 750.145C4-A1], two counts of possession of child sexually abusive material [MCL 750.145C4-A], and two counts of using a computer to commit a crime [MCL 752.7973E]. Guevara-Garcia was arraigned on April 21 and was issued a $15,000 cash or surety bond.

If convicted, Guevara-Garcia faces up to 10 years in prison for the charge of aggravated child sexually abusive activity, up to four years for the charges of possession of child sexually abusive material, and up to 10 years for each charge of using a computer to commit a crime.

The Michigan State Police’s Computer Crimes Unit encourages parents to speak to their children and family members about the safe use of the internet. There are many resources available to assist in keeping people safe online. The MSP ICAC Task Force provides a comprehensive list of resources on their website at http://www.michiganicac.com.
