THE case against Randy Yabut Palaganas was unsealed yesterday after he was arrested in Maite on felony charges of receipt of child pornography.

The federal court grand jury indictment stated that Palaganas knowingly received child pornography between Oct. 7, 2012 and Feb. 7, 2013.

Palaganas was arrested during an undercover investigation of individuals trading child pornography. He was caught with videos depicting sexually explicit conduct involving minors. Such videos had been shipped or transported in foreign commerce using computer.

His personal computer is now a subject of forfeiture allegation.

During his initial appearance before Magistrate Judge Joaquin Manibusan, Palaganas was assigned a federal public defender.

Jury selection and trial is scheduled for Dec. 16 at 9:30 a.m.
