A man who produced child pornography while being legally required to register as a sex offender pled guilty today in federal court in Cedar Rapids.

Kevin Andrew Jauron, age 39, from Marion, Iowa, was convicted of one count of production of child pornography and one count of committing an offense involving a minor while being required to register as a sex offender.

At the plea hearing, Jauron admitted that, between no later than 2013 and continuing to about May 10, 2014, he persuaded a minor to engage in sexually explicit conduct for the purpose of producing visual depictions of the conduct.  Jauron also admitted that, at the time, he was required by law to register as a sex offender.

Sentencing before United States District Court Chief Judge Linda R. Reade will be set after a presentence report is prepared.  Jauron remains in custody of the United States Marshal pending sentencing.  Jauron faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 25 years’ imprisonment and a possible maximum sentence of 40 years’ imprisonment, a $500,000 fine, $200 in special assessments, and at least 5 years and up to life on supervised release following any imprisonment.
