Suspect in Cielo Vista hidden camera case indicted on federal child porn charges

The man accused of placing hidden cameras inside Cielo Vista Mall restrooms was indicted on federal child porn charges.

The man accused of placing hidden cameras in family restrooms at Cielo Vista Mall last year was indicted on federal child porn charges, according to court records.

Irving Marquez was indicted on March 21 after being arrested last May. He bonded out of jail on March 29 but was arrested the next day and charged with one count of receipt and distribution of a visual depiction involving the sexual exploitation of a minor and one count of possession of a visual depiction involving the sexual exploitation of a minor.

That means there is now enough evidence for him to go to trial.

In district court, Marquez was charged with possession of child pornography and invasive visual recording and in a separate case, he is facing an indecency with a child charge.

In June, a judge lowered Marquez’s bond from $1 million to $50,000.

Marquez is accused of placing a camera inside a family restroom at the mall in April of last year and then again in January. One of the cameras was found by someone using the restroom.

Multiple tips were received identifying Marquez as the suspect. Police say Marquez’s own camera captured images of him planting the device in the restroom.

As a result, police were able to release multiple images of him to the public to help identify.

According to the federal indictment, Marquez’s computers, electronic equipment, accessories, devices and any property constituting or traceable to gross profits, and any property used to commit a crime will be seized. Marquez will make his next court appearance on May 8
