A Houston man caught with a computer full of child porn tried to convince "a juvenile family member" to take the rap for it, the U.S. Attorney's Office says.

Pedro Rosales, 32, thought "that if the juvenile claimed the images/videos, the family member would not be prosecuted because of age," prosecutors say.

The stand-up scheme didn't work, sadly for him; he's been indicted and is now being held without bond pending trial.

An investigation found that Rosales was making child porn -- which included bondage scenes -- available to others on the web via peer-to-peer software.

They got a warrant for his Houston residence and "seized a computer which upon forensic examination was found to contain more than 600 digital images and approximately 36 videos of child pornography," the USAO says.

He faces child-porn distribution charges, which carries a minimum five-year prison term and a maximum of 20 years without parole.
