A southwest Iowa man has been sentenced to 10 years in a federal prison on sex-related charges.
Forty-five-year-old Robert Kevin Woodard of Lamoni pleaded guilty in March to a charge of “enticement of a minor for sex.” He was sentenced this week.
Authorities say back in 2007 — from the end of March ’til mid-June– Woodward had a number of “sexually-explicit online chats” with someone he thought was a 14-year-old girl. But Woodard’s chats were with an undercover officer from the Black Hawk County Sheriff’s Office.
Authorities examined Woodard’s computer and confirmed he was the one chatting online. They also found Woodard had downloaded and saved images of child pornography on his computer.
