Former Osage Man Sentenced To 14 Years On Child Pornography Charges

A man who received child pornography was sentenced March 14, 2013, to 14 years in federal prison.

Kevin Perrin, age 49, formerly of Osage, Iowa, received the sentence after a December 21, 2012, guilty plea to one count of receiving child pornography. In a plea agreement, Perrin admitted he knowingly used the Internet to receive and distribute child pornography.

Perrin was sentenced in Cedar Rapids by United States District Court Chief Judge Linda R. Reade. Perrin was sentenced to 168 months’ imprisonment. A special assessment of $100 was imposed, and Perrin must also serve a five-year term of supervised release. He must comply with all sex offender registration and public notification requirements.

This case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Mark Tremmel and was investigated by the Mitchell County Sheriff’s Office and the Clinton County Sheriff’s Office.

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.
