SIOUX CITY – A man who received child pornography was sentenced January 13, 2021 to more than 7 years in federal prison.

Kyler Colten Cook, age 30, from Carroll, IA, received the prison term after a September 23, 2020 guilty plea to receipt of child pornography.

In a plea agreement, Cook admitted that between February 8, 2019 and December 3, 2019, he knowingly received visual depictions of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

While released pending trial, Cook was caught sending graphic texts and visual images to a female and was then detained in federal custody pending trial.

Cook was sentenced in Sioux City by United States District Court Chief Judge Leonard T. Strand. Cook was sentenced to 93 months’ imprisonment and fined $3,000. He must also serve a 5-year term of supervised release after the prison term. There is no parole in the federal system.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Ron Timmons and was investigated by the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Carroll Police Department.
