Storm Lake Man Sentenced On Child Porn Charge

Wed 5-13-2020

(Sioux City)-- A Storm Lake man has been sentenced to five years in prison for possessing child pornography.

24-year-old Ariya Mangsanhanh was sentenced Tuesday in U.S. District Court after pleading guilty to one count of possession of child pornography. 

In a plea agreement Mangsanhanh admitted that between January 2nd, 2017 and August 23rd, 2018 he knowingly possessed child porn, some of which depicted minors under the age of 12. 

The charge stemmed from a search warrant that was executed which resulted in the seizure of cell phones and computers. A forensic examination of the devices turned up over 100 images of child porn being stored on the devices.

In addition to the prison term Mangsanhanh must also serve an eight year term of supervised release.
