An Anamosa man is facing prison time after pleading guilty today to federal child pornography charges. Thirty-six year-old Christopher Heggebo reached a plea agreement where he admitted that in January he engaged in sexually explicit conduct with an eight-year-old girl and video-taped the activity at his home.
He also admitted possessing pornographic images of a 13-year-old girl on his cell phone. The case involved investigators from Anamosa Police, the Jones County Sheriff’s office and the Iowa Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.
Heggebo now faces a sentence of 15 to 40 years in prison and a fine of $500,000. He remains in custody. A sentencing date has not been set.
