A Middleburg sexual predator is back in prison and facing up to 20 years.
54-year-old Orlando Gomez has been charged with possession of child porn. Court records we’ve obtained show law enforcement raided a home where Gomez was staying on Chicory Circle and found multiple laptops and at least one thumb drive that were exclusively or mostly used by Gomez.
On the laptop, the criminal complaint says at least two explicit videos were found. The videos showed prepubescent boys engaging in sexual acts with each other or with adult males.
Gomez was convicted of attempted sexual battery on a boy in Duval County in 1999. He served five years in prison and then violated his parole, sending him back for another seven years. He also registered as a sexual predator because of that conviction.
The new charge brings a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years and maximum of 20 years if he’s convicted.
