Marion Man Charged With Production Of Child Pornography

Kevin Andrew Jauron, age 39, from Marion, Iowa, has been charged with one count of production of child pornography.  The charge is contained in an Indictment filed on November 18, 2014, in United States District Court in Cedar Rapids. 

The Indictment alleges that, on or about March 13, 2014, Jauron used a minor to engage in sexually explicit conduct for the purposes of producing visual depictions of such conduct.

If convicted, Jauron faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 15 years’ imprisonment and a possible maximum sentence of 30 years’ imprisonment, a $250,000 fine, a $100 special assessment, and at least five years and up to life on supervised release following any imprisonment.­

Jauron appeared today in federal court in Cedar Rapids and was held without bond.  Jauron’s next appearance for trial is set for January 26, 2015. 

As with any criminal case, a charge is merely an accusation and a defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Peter Deegan and was investigated by the Marion Police Department.  The Marion Police Department is part of the Iowa Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (Iowa ICAC).  More information about the Iowa ICAC is available at http://www.iaicac.org/Pages/welcome.aspx
