DATE: January 23, 2023
CASE: Sayed Ali Reza Fatemy (Case #21FE015617)
PROSECUTOR: Deputy District Attorney Daniel Jensen, Cyber Crimes Unit
Sayed Ali Reza Fatemy was convicted by a jury of six counts of child molestation and one count of aggravated possession of child pornography.
On September 9, 2021, members of the Internet Crimes Against Children Unit within the Sacramento Valley Hi-Tech Crimes Task Force executed a search warrant on Sayed Fatemy’s home in Rio Linda. The search warrant was the result of a cyber tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that someone from inside the home was uploading videos of child pornography to the internet. Officers seized Fatemy’s electronic devices and online accounts, which revealed a total of 11,207 images of child pornography in his possession. Some of the videos found were of Fatemy sexually abusing an infant.
Fatemy faces a maximum sentence of 18 years and 8 months in prison. Sentencing is set for February 17, 2023, at 2:30 p.m. in Department 33 before the Honorable Laurel White.
