Gina Christa Urbain, age 37, from Dubuque, Iowa, received the prison term after an August 18, 2020 guilty plea to sexually exploiting children and possessing child pornography.

At the guilty plea, Urbain admitted that she sexually exploited two minors, a 7 year-old female and 5 year-old male, by creating visual depictions of sexually explicit material involving both children. Urbain also admitted possessing visual depictions of child pornography.

Urbain was sentenced in Cedar Rapids by United States District Court Judge C.J. Williams. Urbain was sentenced to 360 months’ imprisonment. She must also serve a five-year term of supervised release after the prison term. There is no parole in the federal system.
