CEDAR RAPIDS – A Minnesota man traveled to Iowa to buy teens for sex, a federal indictment says, and he was nabbed waiting by a library.

Terrance Nordwall, age 50, of Faribault, Minnesota, has been charged with attempted sex trafficking of children, attempted enticement of minors, and travel for the purpose of engaging in illicit sexual conduct. The charges are contained in an Indictment unsealed on June 19, 2019, in United States District Court in Cedar Rapids.

The Indictment alleges that, between March 2019 and April 2019, Nordwall attempted to solicit and entice two persons he believed to be under 18 to engage in commercial sex acts and acts constituting sexual abuse under Iowa law. The Indictment also alleges that, in April 2019, Nordwall traveled from Minnesota to Cedar Rapids, Iowa, for the purpose of engaging in illicit sexual conduct. The Indictment also alleges that, in two different counties in Minnesota in 2004, Nordwall was convicted of three counts of criminal sexual conduct and one count of possession of pornographic work involving minors.

If convicted, Nordwall faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years’ imprisonment and a possible maximum sentence of life imprisonment, a $750,000 fine, and at least five years and up to life on supervised release following any imprisonment.

Nordwall appeared on June 25, 2019, in federal court in Cedar Rapids and was held without bond. Nordwall’s next appearance for trial is set for August 26, 2019.

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 is being investigated by the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation and Homeland Security Investigations.

NORDWALL, TERRANCE

    Another Danny Heinrich in the making? Tie a millstone around him and see if he can swim. That is the only cure for his evil perverted ways.

    As a parent and grandparent, I believe Terrance should be hung from a big tree outside town on this very day.
