According to the U.S. Attorney's Office, the investigation started overseas after Homeland Security and customs received a report from Belgian police. According to officers, a Belgian citizen told them he paid an American individual he knew as "Bob" for images and videos of a child.

Prosecutors say an investigation found Matacale was "Bob." They also tell us a search of Matacale's cell phone by investigators found he had received child porn from Warren -- who had taken the photos at Matacale's request.

In addition to these charges, News10NBC has learned that Matacale is a registered sex offender. According to state records, he served a year in jail for a conviction of the attempted rape of a 14-year-old in 2009.

And before that, in 2001, he was sentenced to probation for promoting/possessing sexual performance by a child.

Matacale faces up to 50 years in prison for his charges. Warren faces up to 30 years behind bars.
