March 6, 2019

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) — A Storm Lake man has pleaded guilty to one count of receiving child pornography.

Federal prosecutors say 49-year-old James Gailey was convicted after pleading guilty on Monday to the single count. At his plea hearing in Sioux City, Gailey admitted that in October 2017, he used an online image account to receive child pornography. He also admitted that in January 2018, he did the same thing. Prosecutors say the images included victims as young as infants and toddlers.

Gailey remains in custody until he’s sentenced at a later date. He faces up to 20 years in prison.
