CEDAR RAPIDS – An Iowa man who possessed child pornography was sentenced today to two years in federal prison and must pay restitution to his victims.

Troy French, age 29, of Cedar Rapids, received the sentence after a July 8, 2019, guilty plea to one count of possession of child pornography. At the plea hearing, French admitted that, between 2012 and 2017, he knowingly possessed child pornography, including one or more depictions of prepubescent children.

French was sentenced in Cedar Rapids by United States District Court Judge C.J. Williams. French was sentenced to 24 months’ imprisonment. A special assessment of $100 was imposed, and he was ordered to make $3,000 in restitution to victims depicted in images he possessed. French must also serve a ten-year term of supervised release, and 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 Federal Bureau of Investigation.
