CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa – It’s 15 years in federal prison for a Butler County man convicted for child pornography.

David Myers, 54 of Greene, was indicted in October 2017 on five federal child porn crimes. The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Iowa says Myers received sexually explicit images of minors between March 2005 and August 2014. He pleaded guilty to one count of receipt of child pornography after being convicted of sexual abuse.

Myers was found guilty of 3rd degree sex abuse in Floyd and Butler counties in 1998. Authorities say the victim in both cases was under 14 years old.

15 years in federal prison is the minimum sentence Myers could have received. He will also be on supervised release for five years after leaving prison and must pay $3,000 in restitution.
