A Hialeah registered sex offender sent to federal prison over child pornography on his phone in 2010 will go back to federal prison after posting child pornography on Instagram.

Gabriel Dominguez’s sentence this time, as announced Tuesday: 20 years.

Dominguez pleaded guilty to one count of child porn possession and one count of child porn distribution. His admission of facts says on April 7, 2018, Instagram reported to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that user Chapi305_fbm had uploaded one child pornography file to the account. Dominguez’s name and cellphone number were linked to the account, in addition to the photos on the account being of Dominguez.

When Homeland Security investigators slid into Dominguez’s direct messages with a search warrant, they found a chat with a user who identified as a 14-year-old Australian girl. Dominguez sent her a picture of a naked toddler girl sitting on a man’s lap, her legs open as the man fondled her.

Hitting his Hialeah home with a search warrant turned up a Motorola Moto cellphone with child pornography photos and videos.

Dominguez got five years probation in 2008 on a single count of transferring obscene materials to minors, then violated that in 2010. He got caught sexting and possessing child pornography on his phone on Dec. 29, 2010. Probation turned into a two-year, nine-month sentence with three years of supervised release.
