An Antioch man has been indicted on federal charges of receiving and possessing child pornography, including a picture he took of himself sexually abusing a toddler, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of California, David Anderson said Friday.

Authorities arrested Henry Obdulio Cordon at his L Street home on May 16 following an investigation by Darryl Holcombe, a senior inspector with the Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office and a task force officer with Homeland Security Investigations.

The investigation began in April when Yahoo! allegedly found child pornography in email accounts controlled by Cordon and alerted the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, according to an affidavit filed in connection with a criminal complaint.

The complaint alleges Cordon also emailed himself images of men sexually abusing young children. In addition, Cordon also admitted to taking a photo of himself sexually abusing a friend’s 2- or 3-year-old daughter in the Middle District of Florida in 2011, according to the affidavit.

Filed on Thursday, May 30, 2019 the indictment charges Cordon with one count of receipt of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography. Each charge carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

Cordon waived a detention hearing Friday and remains in the custody of the U.S. Marshals. He is scheduled to return to court for a status conference at 1 p.m. on June 11.

Anyone with information related to the case can contact the Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office at 925-957-2200.

According to police records, Clay County Florida Sheriff’s Deputies arrested Cordon (age 29 at the time) at 9:13 P.M. on June 05, 2015 in the 100 block of Arora Blvd. in Orange Park, for driving with a suspended license. It was his second such offense.
