CEDAR RAPIDS – A Wisconsin sex predator tried to entice a child in Iowa, and is now behind bars facing criminal court proceedings.

Carson Sibley, age 26 of LaCrosse, Wisconsin, has been charged with sexual exploitation of a child, enticement of a minor, travel for the purpose of engaging in illicit sexual conduct, and the commission of these offenses while being required to register as a sex offender. The charges are contained in an Indictment filed on July 19, 2017 in United States District Court in Cedar Rapids.

The Indictment alleges that, between April and June 2017, Sibley persuaded, induced, and enticed a minor to engage in sexual activity and to produce depictions of sexually explicit conduct, and that he traveled across a state line to engage in illicit sexual conduct. The Indictment also alleges that Sibley was convicted of offenses relating to the distribution and possession of child pornography in Hawaii in 2013, and it alleges that he was required to register as a sex offender this year.

If convicted, Sibley faces a possible maximum sentence of life imprisonment, a $1,000,000 fine, $20,400 in special assessments, and at least five years and up to life on supervised release following any imprisonment.

Sibley appeared on July 31 in federal court in Cedar Rapids and was held without bond. Sibley’s next appearance for trial is set for September 18, 2017.

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Mark Tremmel and is being investigated by the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, the Grundy County Sheriff’s Office, the Black Hawk County Sheriff’s Office, the Cedar Rapids Police Department, the LaCrosse Police Department, and Homeland Security Investigations.
