DAVENPORT, Iowa — On December 23, 2020, United States District Court Chief Judge John A. Jarvey sentenced John James Ramirez, age 45, of Davenport, to 60 months in prison for Possession of Child Pornography and Possession of Obscene Visual Representation of the Sexual Abuse of Children announced United States Attorney Marc Krickbaum. Following his prison term, Ramirez was ordered to serve five years of supervised release and pay $200 to the Crime Victims’ Fund.

The investigation began in 2019 when the Davenport Police Department received a report that Ramirez had depictions of child pornography on his home computer. Law enforcement executed a search warrant on Ramirez’s Davenport residence and seized electronic and storage devices. A forensic examination revealed 107 images depicting child pornography of children, ranging in age from infants to teenagers, and 106 computer-generated images depicting child pornography of children. Ramirez knowingly received these visual depictions of child pornography through interstate commerce via the Internet.

This matter was investigated by the Davenport Police Department. This case was prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Iowa.
