Clarion Man Charged with Child Sexual Exploitation Offenses
1/4/2017

Jonathan Sebert, age 24, of Clarion, Iowa, has been charged with sexual exploitation of a child, receipt of child pornography, and possession of child pornography. The charges are contained in an Indictment unsealed on December 28, 2016, in United States District Court in Cedar Rapids.

 

The Indictment alleges that, between 2012 and 2016, Sebert produced, received, and possessed child pornography.

 

If convicted, Sebert faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 15 years' imprisonment and a possible maximum sentence of 70 years' imprisonment, a $750,000 fine, $15,300 in special assessments, and at least five years and up to life on supervised release following any imprisonment.

 

Sebert appeared for a detention hearing on December 30, 2016, in federal court in Cedar Rapids and was held without bond. Sebert's next appearance for trial is set for February 27, 2017.

 

As with any criminal case, a charge is merely an accusation and a defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

 

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Mark Tremmel and is being investigated by the Wright County Sheriff's Office and the Mason City Police Department.
