A northeast Iowa man, found to be in possession of a large collection of child pornography, will be spending a long time in prison. Earlier this year, 38-year-old Steven Risk of Independence admitted that between June of 2011 and February of 2013 he distributed child porn.
Investigators found about 36,000 child porn images and 60 videos while searching his computer in 2013. Risk was convicted on one count each of possession and distribution of child pornography. He was sentenced this week to more than 21 years in federal prison. Risk must serve 15 more years of supervised release following his prison time.
