DCI's Special Agents assigned to the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) task force recently wrapped up investigations that resulted in significant sentences to 3 different child predators. Project Safe Childhood Initiative Convicts Multiple Defendants DES MOINES, Iowa – The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Iowa and the Iowa Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force recently obtained several convictions against defendants who sexually abused, or attempted to sexually abuse, numerous minors. On March 1, 2018, United States District Court Stephanie M. Rose sentenced Gabriel Espinoza, 23, of Marshalltown, Iowa to 25 years in federal prison for sexual exploitation of a minor. Upon his release from imprisonment, Espinoza will serve 25 years of supervised release. The investigation into Espinoza’s crime started in March 2017, when law enforcement in Bucks County, PA learned a 10-year-old female, residing in Pennsylvania, had been sexually exploited via social media by a registered sex offender that lived in Iowa, namely Espinoza. Within days, he was located and arrested by the Iowa ICAC Task Force. After additional investigation, law enforcement learned Espinoza had also victimized a minor female in Minnesota. This matter was investigated by the Iowa Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, the Bucks County (Pennsylvania) District Attorney Office, and the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. The Iowa Division of Narcotics Enforcement (DNE) the Iowa State Patrol (ISP), Marshalltown Police Department, Ankeny Police Department, and agents with the Iowa Division of Intelligence (DOI) also assisted in the investigation. On December 8, 2017, U.S. District Court Judge Rebecca Goodgame Ebinger sentenced Gaspar Jose Francisco, 27, of Osceola, IA to 14 years imprisonment for Enticement and Attempted Enticement of a Minor to Engage in Illicit Sexual Activities. Upon his release from imprisonment, Francisco will serve 5 years of supervised release. Gaspar is an illegal immigrant, and will be turned over to Homeland Security following the completion of his sentence. The investigation was initiated by a report to the Osceola Police department that alleged possible sexual abuse of a local minor by an adult who lived nearby. Further investigation revealed Gaspar used social media to entice the 13-year-old female to engage in illegal sexual activity with him. This matter was investigated by the Iowa Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, the Osceola Police Department and was assisted by the Homeland Security, and the Iowa Attorney General’s Office. On November 17, 2017, United States District Court Judge Rebecca Goodgame Ebinger sentenced Jordan Adolfo Turner, 25, of Muscatine, IA to 20 years imprisonment for Receipt of Child Pornography. Upon his release from imprisonment, Turner will serve 10 years of supervised release. This investigation was initiated by a tip from an Iowa man to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), which alleged his 13-year-old son was being sexually exploited via social media by an adult male. Further investigation by Iowa ICAC revealed Turner posed as an adult female on social media and solicited nude images and videos of minors that resided in Iowa. The investigation discovered Turner solicited and received nude images and/or videos from seven other minors that resided in Iowa. This matter was investigated by the Iowa Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, and was assisted by the FBI (Minneapolis Field Office and Omaha Field Office), and the Muscatine Police Department.
