Ali Cortez: Honey, Did You Happen to Find My Child Porn CD?

When you're very, very estranged from your wife because she thinks you've been cheating, there are several conversations you desperately hope never to have.

Chief among them would likely be something along the lines of "Umm, honey, have you seen my CD with the child porn on it?"

Ali Manual Cortez had a version of that conversation, and couldn't have been happy with his wife's response, which was basically "Oh, you mean the CD I handed over to the police? Yeah, I saw that."

Cortez, of Katy, has been charged with possession of child porn as a result, court documents show.

He told investigators the CD, which was labeled "Famousa," was "a gift from a friend in Venezuela and he had intentions of destroying it."

Instead, he left it in a bag in his house while he went off to live elsewhere, which is probably not the optimum strategy in the porn-stash-hiding playbook.

Cortez's wife told investigators she was "in the study looking for signs of infidelity" when she found the CD.

She called the cops; an officer said in the court documents the CD contained three videos, featuring kids aged 10 to 14 having sex with each other or, in one case, with an adult male.
