SIOUX CITY - A man who downloaded child pornography was sentenced Wednesday to 5 1/2 years in federal prison.
Daniel Lindgren, 25, Schaller, received the sentence after a June 21 guilty plea to one count of receiving child pornography. At the guilty plea, Lindgren admitted that, in 2007, he used the internet to download child pornography.
Lindgren was sentenced in Sioux City by United States District Court Judge Mark W. Bennett. Lindgren was sentenced to 66 months' imprisonment. A special assessment of $100 was imposed, and Lindgren must also serve a 10-year term of supervised release. He must comply with all sex offender registration and public notification requirements.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation was joined in the case investigation by the Schaller Police Department, the Sac County sheriff's office and the Buena Vista County sheriff's office. It was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Mark Tremmel.
