Clinton Man Sentenced On Child Porn Charges


CLINTON, Iowa - A Clinton man is sentenced to 10 years in prison for receiving and distributing child pornography.

34 year old Ryan Budde pleaded guilty to one count last July. The investigation started in 2017 when law enforcement received a tip from a social media company that 27 files had been uploaded to a website.

KWQC TV6 reports that a total of 365 images containing child pornography were found on two cell phones and two laptop computers belonging to Budde. Investigators say Budde also posed as a 15 year old in chat room sessions with young boys.

Budde was also fined $5,000 in restitution, pay $100 to the Crime Victims' Fund and register as a sex offender.
