SUMMARY:On June 30, 2009, Castellon was found guilty of attempted enticement of a minor to engage in prostitution and attempted sex trafficking of children following a bench trial conducted by United States District Judge Leonie M. Brinkema. Castellon responded to an ad on the Internet placed by law enforcement. During e-mail and telephone discussions with the mother—who was an undercover law enforcement agent—Castellon agreed to pay to engage in sexual acts with her minor daughter. Castellon arrived at the prearranged meeting point at a hotel and brought several hundred dollars to consummate the deal. He was arrested after entering the hotel room. He was sentenced to 180 months in prison followed by 10 years supervised release. He appealed his conviction and the Fourth Circuit affirmed.
