Guam – A grand jury indictment has been handed down on the police officer who was arrested on child pornography charges.

Gregory Quintanilla has been charged with dissemination of child pornography as a first degree felony and possession of child pornography as a second degree felony. The grand jury indictment was handed down nearly two weeks after his arrest.  Quintanilla was initially detained following information from Internet Crimes Against Children Regional Task Force that the police officer allegedly possessed child pornography.

Court documents state Quintanilla received and forwarded a known child pornographic video on October 1st through Facebook. Police allege they were able to confirm that the Facebook account belonged to Officer Quintanilla and that the video depicted a minor under the age of 14 engaging in sexual activities in the presence of other children.

Quintanilla has been a police officer for nearly four years and following his arrest he was placed on 20-days paid administrative leave.
