Authorities say they found what is being called a “shocking amount of child pornography” during a search of a doctor’s home in southwest Iowa. Sixty-eight-year-old Dennis Jones, a pediatrician in Council Bluffs, is accused of sexually abusing a 5-year-old granddaughter. He’s scheduled to go on trial in January.
Several searches of Dr. Jones’ home have been conducted since May and authorities say two computers and eight hard drives were seized. The number of pornographic files allegedly found and their nature has not been released. Jones says he’s innocent. If convicted, he could face a 50-year prison sentence.
