Iowa man faces at least 25 years in prison for sexually abusing a child

SIOUX CITY – An Iowa man faces at least 25 years in prison for sexually abusing a child.

A Sioux City man who took photographs while sexually abusing a minor pled guilty on September 22, 2022, in federal court in Sioux City. Kenneth Miller, age 29, from Sioux City, Iowa was convicted of sexual exploitation of a minor.

In a plea agreement, Miller admitted that he sexually abused a seven-year-old child in their bedroom. A search of Miller’s email address revealed 6 photographs of the minor child, taken by the defendant, while he was sexually abusing the child. The defendant had previously been convicted of criminal attempt-visual depiction of sexually explicit conduct in Nebraska.

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by the United States Attorneys’ Offices and the Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state, and local resources to locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who sexually exploit children, and to identify and rescue victims.

Sentencing before United States District Court Chief Judge Leonard T. Strand will be set after a presentence report is prepared. Miller remains in custody of the United States Marshal pending sentencing. Miller faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 25 years’ imprisonment and a possible maximum sentence of 50 years’ imprisonment, a $250,000 fine, and 5 years up to life of supervised release following any imprisonment.
