U.S. Attorney Nick Klinefeldt says that preventing child exploitation is a top priority, and the case against Terry Campie showed how local, state and federal authorities can work together successfully.
Campie pleaded guilty Monday to attempting to entice a minor. The former dean of the ITT Tech campus in Cedar Rapids, Iowa was arrested after he drove to Clinton to meet the girl after sexually explicit chats.
Campie faces a minimum sentence of 10 years in prison. His attorney argues that is excessive given he'd face less time if the case had been handled in state court and there was no girl involved.
