Dubuque Man Who Persuaded Teen To Send Nude Photos Sentenced

A Dubuque man, who prosecutors say persuaded a teenage girl to send him nude photos and videos, has been sentenced to federal prison. 60 year old Mark Curtis Sr. was sentenced this week to 15 years behind bars, after pleading guilty to one count of sexual exploitation of a child and one count of receipt of child pornography. Between August 2018 and October 2018, prosecutors say Curtis persuaded a 15 year old girl, who lived out of the state of Iowa, to send him nude photos and videos of herself. Curtis knew the girl was a minor. In total, investigators found approximately 44 files containing images sent between the girl and Curtis.  Once he is released Curtis must serve five years of supervised release.
