Muscatine Man Sentenced to 32 years for Child Exploitation

August 14, 2012

DAVENPORT, IA - On August 14, 2012, Brian Edward Reynolds, age 44, from Muscatine, Iowa, was sentenced to 384 months imprisonment after having been convicted at trial for Enticement of a minor to engage in unlawful sexual conduct, 180 months for Production of Child Pornography, and 120 months for receipt of child pornography, all sentences to run concurrently, announced United States Attorney Nicholas A. Klinefeldt. United States District Judge Robert W. Pratt also ordered Reynolds to serve fifteen years on supervised release following imprisonment and pay $300 towards the Crime Victims Fund.

From December of 2008 to January of 2009, Reynolds communicated on-line with a thirteen-year-old minor female for the purpose of enticing her to engage in sexual conduct. Near the end of January of 2009, Reynolds lured the minor out of her home and met with her on the street in Muscatine. Reynolds used force to get the minor to submit to his sexual advances. Later the Federal Bureau of Investigation seized Reynolds’s cellular telephone and determined that he had received pornographic images of another minor female that Reynolds had requested from her.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Muscatine Iowa Police Department. This case was prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Iowa.
