Former psychologist sentenced for child porn

Posted:

DAVENPORT (AP)--A federal judge in Davenport has handed down the maximum sentence of 10 years in prison to a former Iowa City psychologist who pleaded guilty in April to child pornography charges.

The U.S. Department of Justice issued a release Monday saying 61-year-old Howard I. Weinberg received the 10-year term Friday and will be required to spend ten years on supervised release after his prison term.

U.S. District Court Judge John A. Jarve, denied a request to reduce the sentence. He noted the young age of the victims in the images found on Weinberg's computer. He also noted the fact that there were more than 2,500 images, the substantial period of time the conduct occurred, and Weinberg's possession of images of bondage and torture.
