SPENCER MAN RECEIVED 65 MONTH SENTENCE FOR DOWNLOADING CHILD PORNOGRAPHY 
6/12/2012 
United States Attorney's Office
Northern District of Iowa
United States Attorney Stephanie M. Rose

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 12, 2012

SPENCER MAN RECEIVED 65 MONTH SENTENCE FOR DOWNLOADING CHILD PORNOGRAPHY

     A man who received child pornography was sentenced June 11, 2012, to 65 months in federal prison.  Justin Funck, age 28, of Spencer, Iowa, received the sentence after a November 14, 2011, guilty plea to one count of receiving child pornography.  At the guilty plea, Funck admitted that, between April 2009 and May 2009, he downloaded child pornography using the Internet.
     Funck was sentenced in Sioux City by United States District Court Judge Donald E. O'Brien.  Funck was sentenced to 65 months' imprisonment.  A special assessment of $100 was imposed, and Funck must also serve a 5 year term of supervised release after the prison term.  He must comply with all sex offender registration and public notification requirements.  There is no parole in the federal system.  Funck is being held in the United States Marshal's custody until he can be transported to a federal prison.
     This case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Mark Tremmel and was investigated by the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  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 United States Attorney's Offices and the Criminal Division's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section (CEOS), Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state, and local resources to better locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the Internet, as well as to identify and rescue victims.
