CEDAR RAPIDS MAN PLEADS GUILTY TO SEXUAL EXPLOITATION OF A CHILD AND POSSESSION OF CHILD PORNOGRAPHY

 

     A man who produced and possessed child pornography pled guilty on December 22, 2016, in federal court in Cedar Rapids.  Michael Bordman, age 23, from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, was convicted of one count of sexual exploitation of a child and one count of possession of child pornography.  At the plea hearing, Bordman admitted that, between 2015 and 2016, he knowingly used a child to produce child pornography.  He also admitted that he possessed child pornography on a cell phone.

     Sentencing before United States District Court Chief Judge Linda R. Reade will be set after a presentence report is prepared.  Bordman remains in custody of the United States Marshal pending sentencing.  Bordman faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 15 years' imprisonment and a possible maximum sentence of 50 years' imprisonment, $500,000 in fines, $10,200 in special assessments, and supervised release for 5 years to life following any imprisonment.

     This case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Mark Tremmel and is being investigated by the Cedar Rapids Police Department, the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, and Homeland Security Investigations.  This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse.  Led by the United States Attorneys' Offices and the Criminal Division's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state, and local resources to locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who sexually exploit children, and to identify and rescue victims. ​
