Nassau County Sheriff's Office booking photo of Eugenio Valeriano

NASSAU COUNTY, Fla. – A 59-year-old Nassau County man was sentenced Thursday afternoon to two life sentences on two counts of sexual battery.

Eugenio Valeriano also received five years in prison for his conviction on possession of photographs and sexual performance by child.

In February 2012, Valeriano dropped off two disposable cameras at a local drugstore to have pictures developed, according to the state attorney's office. After the photos were developed, the technician noticed lewd photos of a young girl and alerted authorities.

Police seized the photos and tracked down Valeriano.

Investigators found that Valeriano showed the 6-year-old girl porn and had taken lewd photographs of her. He had also sexually battered the girl on multiple occasions.
