Charles City Man Says Judge Used “Fixed Sentencing Policy” in Child Porn Case

Charles City, Iowa – 54-year-old, Jeffery Kirk of Charles City plead guilty in November of 2016 for a misdemeanor count of sexual exploitation of a minor. There were pornographic images of children on his phone.

Kirk was facing up to two years in prison before he filed an appeal saying the judge abused his discretion. He also claimed that the judge did not make the decision on Kirk’s case.

The Iowa Court of Appeals overturned the initial decision and they now say Kirk must be re-sentenced.

The Appeals Court says that what the judge did was called “categorical determination”.
