The release said Martinez entered into an open-ended guilty plea in Fayette County on October 31.

Martinez was arrested in May 2021after an investigation revealed he created and shared obscene videos depicting underage females.

Hamlin said Martinez's sentence is "completely appropriate for someone who targeted and repeatedly victimized children."

"The victims showed a tremendous amount of courage detailing these acts. I hope this resolution encourages other victims to come forward and demonstrates that there is hope in justice," Hamlin said.
