A Wapello man has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for child pornography charges.

According to United States Attorney Marc Krickbaum from the office of the Southern District of Iowa, U.S. District Court Judge Rebecca Goodgame Ebinger sentenced 65-year-old Jack Lee Coleman Tuesday. Coleman is also ordered to serve five years of supervised release following his imprisonment, pay $100 to the Crime Victims’ Fund, and comply with the sex offender registry requirements upon release. Coleman pled guilty on February 2nd to one count of production of child pornography. An investigation began in 2016 when a minor disclosed being sexually abused by Coleman, and a computer belonging to Coleman was seized and examined. The computer contained nude images of five minors produced by a hidden camera placed in a bathroom by Coleman, as well as child pornography images of another minor. The Federal Bureau of Investigation and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children handled the investigation.
