CEDAR RAPIDS – An Eldora man who attempted to entice a minor to engage in sexual activity and distributed child pornography was sentenced January 16, 2013, to fourteen years in federal prison.

Kevin Trittien, age 35, received the sentence after an October 9, 2013, guilty plea to one count of attempted enticement of a minor and one count of distribution of child pornography. At the guilty plea, Trittien admitted that, in 2012, he attempted to entice an undercover officer who was posing as a minor to meet for the purpose of unlawful sex with a minor. He also admitted that, in 2012, he distributed child pornography.

Trittien was sentenced in Cedar Rapids by United States District Court Chief Judge Linda R. Reade. Trittien was sentenced to 168 months’ imprisonment and fined $8,000. A special assessment of $200 was imposed, and Trittien must also serve an eight-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 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.
