Former Black Hills Salvation Army leader sentenced on child pornography charge

The former Black Hills Area Coordinator for the Salvation Army was sentenced in federal court to 17-and-a-half years in prison for Receipt of Child Pornography.

Forty-one-year-old Javier Clark Moreno was also ordered to serve eight years of supervised release after his prison term. He will be required to register as a sex offender.

Moreno was arrested and federally indicted following two cyber-tips from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Examination of one of Moreno’s Salvation Army accounts revealed over 10,000 recordings and images of child pornography.

Moreno later admitted to viewing and collecting child pornography since the early 2000’s.

Moreno was immediately remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
