NEW YORK — A Filipino bodybuilder from Queens, who pled guilty last year to charges related to international child pornography, has been sentenced to 15 years in prison.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said 27-year-old Keith Liwanag directed women in the Philippines to sexually abuse children, and send him photographs of the abuse in exchange for money.
Between September and October 2016, Liwanag used a Facebook account to communicate with women in the Philippines.
Authorities seized over 50 recorded video conferences between Liwanag and the women over Facebook and Skype. Liwanag had also shared a video he created online.
After completing his 15-year sentence, Liwanag must register as a sex offender.
