In addition to 35 years in prison, Castaneda will be on supervised release for 10 years and have to register as a sex offender.
He was convicted of one count of traveling from another state to engage in sexual activity with a child under the age of 12 years and one count of enticing a minor to engage in illegal sexual activity.
“This sentence is a reminder of what child predators can expect if they seek to harm a child here,” U.S. Attorney Byung J. “BJay” Pak said. “There is no tolerance for their depraved conduct. Our mission is to protect citizens, especially the most vulnerable members of our community.”
