MANCHESTER MAN SENTENCED TO 20 YEARS IN FEDERAL PRISON FOR
PRODUCING CHILD PORNOGRAPHY
    A man who used the Internet to entice minors to take sexually explicit images of
themselves was sentenced March 31, 2010, to 20 years in federal prison.  
    Kyle Michael Kirby, age 25, from Manchester, Iowa, received the prison term after a March 6, 2009, guilty plea to one count of producing child pornography.
    According to information in the court record, in 2008, Kirby used false accounts
on Facebook, Yahoo, MSN Hotmail, and America On Line AIM for the purpose of
soliciting others online. Posing as a minor female, Kirby persuaded 14- and 15-year-old
children to send him sexually explicit images of themselves. Kirby sent sexually explicit
images to the children in order to persuade them to generate and send sexually explicit
images of to him.
    Kirby was sentenced in Cedar Rapids by United States District Court Chief Judge Linda R. Reade. Kirby was sentenced to 240 months' imprisonment and ordered to pay a $100 special assessment. He must also serve a 15-year term of supervised release after the prison term. There is no parole in the federal system.
    Kirby is being held in the United States Marshal's custody until he can be
transported to a federal prison.
    The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Peter Deegan and
investigated by the Linn County, Iowa, Sheriff's Department.
