NC woman sentenced on child pornography charge

Wednesday, February 27th, 2013

WILMINGTON, N.C. (AP) – A Fayetteville woman has been sentenced to 30 years in prison after federal prosecutors say she drugged a child and produced pornographic images while the child was unconscious.

U.S. Attorney Thomas Walker said Catina Martell was also sentenced to supervised release for life.

Martell pleaded guilty last November to one count of manufacturing/producing child pornography.

A statement from the U.S. Attorney’s office said Fayetteville police discovered in August 2011 that the 38-year-old Martell had drugged a child, then used the child to produce the images. Investigators conducted a forensics review of Martell’s computer and found numerous images of child pornography.

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations office in Raleigh was contacted because it was determined that Martell was sharing the images internationally.

Martell was sentenced on Feb. 22.
