Reason #234: Two Strikes

In 2010, Juan Antonio Rosa, of San Antonio, Texas, was released early from a five-year prison sentence for possession of child pornography. Shortly thereafter, he got a job working at a local Wendy's - clearly, the man was turning his life around. Then in July 2011, his apartment was raided by ICE and child porn was once again found on his computer.

Fast-forward to now, and Rosa has just been sentenced to 22 years in a federal prison (the original conviction was a state charge). Not just for possession, mind you, but for selling copies of his child porn via the drive-through at his Wendy's. It seems he would meet prospective customers online and arrange for them to deliver a password--"Scooby-Doo"--when they arrived in his drive-through, after which they would find a memory card hidden amongst their food, and Rosa would find himself fifty dollars richer.

Wendy's management, naturally, denies any knowledge of the operation, and Rosa, for his part--after apologizing two his wife and two young daughters--made sure to remind everyone that "it's not for me. I'm just trying to make some money off of it."
