Federal prosecutors say Aaron Olson of Nora Springs used two minors to produce digital images of “sexually explicit conduct.” According to the indictment, the incidents happened in 2017 and 2018.
Last November, Olson was arrested at the Nora Springs Motel and charged in state court with felony sex abuse for alleged contact with a five-year-old girl as well as marijuana possession. He’s pleaded not guilty to the state charges, but that case is on hold pending resolution of the federal case.
Olson was arrested last week on the federal charges. If convicted, he faces a minimum of 15 years and a maximum of 60 years in a federal prison. His trial is scheduled for July 8.
