SIOUX CITY – A man who received and distributed child pornography was sentenced February 26, 2021, to more than 14 years in federal prison.

Kevin Eugene Dill, age 56, from Webster City, Iowa, received the prison term after an October 9, 2020, guilty plea to one count of distribution of child pornography and one count of receipt of child pornography.

In a plea agreement, Dill admitted that between March 2012 through June 2020, he knowingly received and possessed over thousands of images and videos of child pornography. In September of 2017, an FBI Special Agent operating in an undercover capacity conducted several undercover sessions with Dill, wherein Dill distributed child pornography to the undercover agent. On October 31, 2017, law enforcement executed a search warrant at Dill’s residence, and Dill admitted to receiving child pornography. Despite being confronted, Dill continued to access child pornography utilizing PayPal to purchase child pornography from a Chinese website. When Dill was arrested in June 2020, he again admitted to accessing child pornography for sexual gratification.

Dill was sentenced in Sioux City by United States District Court Chief Judge Leonard T. Strand. Dill was sentenced to 169 months’ imprisonment. He was ordered to make $60,500 in restitution. He must also serve a 5-year term of supervised release after the prison term. There is no parole in the federal system.

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

The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Mikala Steenholdt and investigated by The Iowa Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force and the FBI Child Exploitation and Human Trafficking Task Force.

    The following punishment works for rapists also.
    First, staple their nuts down to a bench you have them sitting on.

    Second, PUSH them of backward.

    Third, Removed remaining connected parts with a tack hammer.

    Fourth, REMEMBER, we don’t use Band aids, let them bleed.

    As part of punishment, he should have his nuts cut off, then get a frontal lobotomy. Actually there is no place in society for perverts like this.

      Personally I’d say cut the single dangle in half lengthwise with a rusty knife and let it clot on it’s own without any medical help. I remember saying this when a 6 year old was raped in Austin and almost got punched for saying it. There are too many sick people out there.
