Dubuque, Cedar Rapids men get prison for child porn

Posted: Updated:
CEDAR RAPIDS (AP) -

Two Iowa men have been sentenced to federal prison for separate child pornography convictions.

The U.S. Attorney's Office for northern Iowa says Jason Smith, 21, of Cedar Rapids was sentenced Tuesday to 16 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to one count of receiving child pornography.

Investigators say Smith posed as a girl on the Internet and enticed minors to send him sexually explicit videos.

Another man, 50-year-old Robert Buss, 50, of Dubuque was sentenced to 20 years in federal prison Tuesday after earlier pleading guilty to one count of distribution of child pornography.

Investigators say Buss used the Internet to distribute child pornography and also tried to entice minors into sending him sexually explicit pictures, including a boy he met while on a mission trip to Haiti.
