SIOUX CITY – A Northern Iowa man who possessed child pornography was sentenced on January 27, 2020, to 7 years in federal prison.

Raymond Painter, Jr., age 31, from Laurens, Iowa, received the prison term after an August 19, 2019, guilty plea to one count of possession of child pornography.

In a plea agreement, Painter admitted that between April 15, 2013 and November 27, 2017, he possessed images and videos of child pornography. During the sentencing hearing, information was presented from Painter’s Google account that revealed online conversations between Painter and another individual during which Painter expressed a desire to have sex with very young girls, specifically girls between six and 11 years old.

Painter was sentenced in Sioux City by United States District Court Chief Judge Leonard T. Strand. Painter was sentenced to 84 months’ imprisonment. He must also serve a 5-year term of supervised release after the prison term. There is no parole in the federal system.

Painter is being held in the United States Marshal’s custody until he can be transported to a federal prison.
