EAGLE GROVE, Iowa – An Eagle Grove man convicted of sexually exploiting a child and threatening to extort a minor has been sentenced to more than 28 years in federal prison.
Jason Marvets, 30, pleaded guilty to one count of sexual exploitation of a child and one count of extortion.
Marvets admitted that between 2016 and 2017 that he “persuaded or coerced a child to send him sexually-explicit depictions of herself. In a plea agreement, he admitted that this child was 11 and 12 years old and that he threatened to distribute depictions of her in order to get more depictions of her,” according to a press release from the United States Attorney’s Office.
Marvets also admitted he obtained sexually-explicit depictions from a 15-year-old and threatened to ruin her life when she did not communicate with him.
He was sentenced to 344 months’ imprisonment and must also serve a seven-year term of supervised release after that is served.
