A 22-year-old Brownsville man found himself in federal court after authorities alleged he sent photos of his genitals to someone who had not reached the age of 16.

Julian Martinez appeared in front of U.S. Magistrate Judge Ronald Morgan on charges of transferring obscene material to a minor.

Homeland Security Investigations agents arrested Martinez on Wednesday after an investigation into the online solicitation of minors.

According to the criminal complaint, Martinez told investigators he used a phone to send three improper images to the minor.

Morgan told Martinez that if he is convicted, he faces up to 10 years in prison, the possibility of a $250,000 fine and would be required to register as a sex offender for 15 years.

Martinez is temporarily being held without bond pending a detention and probable cause hearing scheduled for June 5.
