A man who possessed child pornography was sentenced December 12, 2011, to seven months in federal prison.

Martin Weeks, age 43, formerly of Waterloo, Iowa, and now of New York, received the sentence after a July 7, 2011, guilty plea to one count of possessing child pornography. At the guilty plea, Weeks admitted that, between November 2007 and February 2008, he knowingly possessed child pornography.

Weeks was sentenced in Cedar Rapids by United States District Court Chief Judge Linda R. Reade. Weeks was sentenced to seven months’ imprisonment. A special assessment of $100 was imposed, and Weeks must also serve a five-year term of supervised release. He must comply with all sex offender registration and public notification requirements.

Weeks was released with credit for time served.

This case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Mark Tremmel and was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
