As part of his 70 month sentence, Perez was also ordered to serve 10 years of probation upon release and pay a a $1,500 fine.
Prosecutors say two children came forward to police back in May 2012 alleging Perez had sexually abused them while they were staying at his home during Spring Break 2011.
Perez took photos of one child naked in a shower and later uploaded them to his computer. His indictment and conviction is based on that evidence and other images found on Perez's electronic devices during a search in June 2012.
According to prosecutors, investigators found no evidence of the alleged sexual assault of the children in any of the images found.
