A 49-year-old Iowa man was sentenced to four years in prison for possession of child pornography.
John R. Clark, formally of Clarinda, Iowa, is ordered to serve the term consecutively with a sentence Clark is currently serving in Florida for Lewd and Lascivious Act on a Child.
The four year sentence was imposed by United States District Judge John Jarvey. Judge Jarvey also ordered Clark to serve a ten year term of supervised release following incarceration.
On November 1, 2012, the defendant pled guilty to a charge of Possession of Child Pornography. The investigation showed that Clark was receiving images of child pornography over the internet.
At the time of his guilty plea, Clark admitted that on May 7, 2009, he had images on his home computer that depicted minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.
The investigation was conducted by the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation and the Department of Homeland Security and was prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office Southern District of Iowa.
