Eldora man faces federal charges of child sexual exploitation

Kevin Trittien, age 35, of Eldora, Iowa, has been indicted on federal child sexual exploitation charges. T­he charges are contained in an Indictment unsealed August 23, 2013, in United States District Court in Cedar Rapids.

The Indictment alleges that, in 2012, Trittien used the Internet to attempt to persuade a person defendant believed to be under sixteen to engage in sexual activity. The Indictment also alleges that, between 2009 and 2012, Trittien distributed, received, and possessed child pornography.

If convicted on all charges, Trittien faces a mandatory minimum sentence of ten years’ imprisonment and a possible maximum sentence of life imprisonment, a $1,000,000 fine, a $400 special assessment, and at least five years and up to life on supervised release following any imprisonment.­

Trittien appeared for a detention hearing today in federal court in Cedar Rapids and was held without bond. Trittien’s next appearance for trial is set for October 28, 2013.

As with any criminal case, a charge is merely an accusation and a defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Mark Tremmel and was investigated by the Garner Police Department, the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office, and the Grundy County Sheriff’s Office.
