According to court documents, a Columbia County Sheriff’s Office detective, who was also an FBI task force officer, was investigating people in Florida who were actively receiving child sexual abuse material on the internet using a particular online file-sharing network. The detective downloaded material from a particular IP address traced to an apartment in Jacksonville where Robledo was living.

In April 2017, two FBI agents interviewed Robledo. He let the agents take his computer to search and admitted to using file-sharing programs to find child sexual abuse material. After his interview, he went to Argentina and stayed for six years.
