Waterloo man gets 11 years in prison for child porn

Posted:
DAVENPORT (KWWL) -

A Waterloo man was sentenced to 11 years in prison on Friday after pleading guilty to distributing child pornography.

Court documents say that between March and May 2009, 57-year-old Gary Steven Blackburn had conversations on a Yahoo chat room with an undercover Clinton County detective who he thought was a 13-year-old girl.

According to the detective, Blackburn asked when the "girl's" parents were or were not home, and asked about secluded areas near the "girl's" home where he could meet her.  They say that Blackburn also asked her to perform sex acts on herself and with her dog.

They say Blackburn also sent the girl child pornography and suggested that she perform those acts with Blackburn.

In late May 2009, detectives executed a search warrant at Blackburn's home and seized his computer and found child pornography.

Blackburn was also sentenced to 10 years supervised release and ordered to register as a sex offender.
