Attorney General Balderas Announces 38-Year Prison Sentence for Man Convicted of Manufacturing Child Sexual Abuse Materials

ALBUQUERQUE, NM—Today, Attorney General Balderas announced that John
Dickman was convicted of three counts of sexual exploitation of children through
manufacture and two other related charges. Dickman and his wife Crystal Dickman,
sexually abused two young girls in their care and made child sexual abuse materials
involving the girls, who were both younger than six years old. Crystal Dickman previously
pled guilty to similar crimes and was sentenced to 18 years for her role. Yesterday, in
Bernalillo County District Court, John Dickman pleaded guilty to five charges and was
sentenced to 38 years in prison.
“My office continues to seek justice for children who are abused,” said Attorney General
Balderas. “I am grateful that our office was able to secure justice and hold these
individuals accountable for the heinous crimes they committed.”
The case originated from a tip received at the Attorney General’s Office from the National
Center for Missing and Exploited Children. The case was investigated by Agent Anna
Trujillo of the Office Attorney General and prosecuted by Assistant Attorney General
Bryan McKay
