Man admits to sex with 8-year-old girl


CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) - A man who video-recorded himself sexually abusing an 8-year-old pled guilty today in federal court in Cedar Rapids.

In a plea agreement, 36-year-old Christopher Heggebo of Anamosa admits that in January he engaged in sexually explicit conduct with an 8-year-old girl and video-recorded the sexual activity. He also admitted possessing sexually explicit images of a 13-year-old female on a mobile telephone in the fall of 2009.

Heggebo faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 15 years imprisonment and a possible maximum sentence of 40 years imprisonment, a $500,000 fine, $200 in special assessments, and supervised release following any imprisonment for at least 5 years and up to life.
