Men Get Prison in Separate Child Porn Cases
COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) - Two Iowa men who were convicted on child pornography charges have been sentenced to federal prison.
Prosecutors say 26-year-old Edward Robertson, of Spirit lake, was given seven years. Robertson must serve 10 years of supervised release after he leaves custody.
A U.S. District Court jury in Council Bluffs found Robertson guilty of receiving child pornography over the Internet from October 2008 until March 24, 2009.
In a separate case, 59-year-old Danny Hummel, of Essex, was given six months in prison, followed by 10 years of supervised release. He'd pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography.
