75-year-old Iowan gets 15 years for child porn

DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) — An eastern Iowa man who pleaded guilty to producing child pornography has been given 15 years in federal prison.

James Hall, of Eldridge, was sentenced on Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Davenport. Online court records say he’s 75 years old.

Prosecutors say Hall asked a 15-year-old boy to perform a sex act so Hall could record the incident and then watch it on his desktop computer.

Hall was arrested on state charges of sexual abuse involving the boy, but the case was dropped because of the federal prosecution.
