Iowa child porn distributor sent to prison for over 5 years

justice1OMAHA – A man who distributed child pornography, was a drug user in possession of a firearm, and destroyed evidence was sentenced July 3, 2013, to 66 months in federal prison.

Lennon Slade, age 27, of Rock Rapids, Iowa, received the sentence after a February 14, 2013, guilty plea to one count of distribution of child pornography and one count of destruction of evidence and a May 30, 2012, guilty plea to one count of being a drug user in possession of a firearm. At the guilty pleas, Slade admitted that he distributed child pornography, that he was a drug user in possession of a firearm, and that he destroyed evidence when officers were attempting to execute a search warrant at his house.

Slade was sentenced in Sioux City by United States District Court Judge Mark W. Bennett. Slade was sentenced to 66 months’ imprisonment. A special assessment of $300 was imposed, and Slade must also serve a five-year term of supervised release. He must comply with all sex offender registration and public notification requirements.

This case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Forde Fairchild and Mark Tremmel and was investigated by the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Lyon County Sheriff’s Office.

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse.
