Posted:

CEDAR RAPIDS (AP)--Federal officials have charged a 77-year-old Cedar Rapids man with producing child pornography.

Defendant Jimmie Coutentos appeared Tuesday in federal court on two counts of producing child pornography and one count of possessing child pornography.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Ian Thornhill says Coutentos is being held in the Linn County Jail pending a detention hearing Thursday.

An indictment unsealed Tuesday charges that in 2001 Coutentos photographed two different minors engaging in sexually explicit conduct.

Thornhill says Coutentos faces up to 20 years in prison on each count of producing pornography and up to five years on the count of possessing child pornography, along with a $250,000 fine.
