Iowa Teacher Gets 24 Years In Prison for Sex With Student
Iowa Teacher Gets 24 Years In Prison For Video Recording Having Sex With A 15 Year-Old Student
Former Iowa teacher Abraham Christopher Smith is headed to federal prison. He pleaded guilty to sexually exploiting a 15 year-old student.
The USAO for Southern Iowa said in press release that Abraham Christopher Smith was sentenced to 24 years in federal prison.
Smith had pleaded guilty in June to enticement of a minor.
As a teacher, Smith knowingly enticed a 15-year-old student to engage in sexual activity with him. The encounters occurred on at least two separate dates in October 2020.
Smith also recorded at least one of the encounters on his iPhone. Investigators found the video stored in a “private photo vault.” The app also contained multiple sexually provocative images of the victim. The iPhone app also contained provacative text messages.
It is unclear how many encounters occurred between Smith and the student.
Federal prosecutors dropped three additional federal kiddie porn charges as part of a ple deal. The enticement of a minor charge carried a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years in prison, and a maximum of up to life.
After serving his sentence, Smith will be on supervised release for 10 more years. He will also have to register as a sex offender.
Iowa state court records show that Smith was also charged with multiple state crimes, including sexual abuse, sexual exploitation of a minor, and sexual exploitation by a school employee.
Court documents show there was a pattern of sexual contact between Smith and a 15-year-old female student. Documents also detail two such incidents. The first at the home of the victim. The second being at a park while stargazing in September 2020.
Federal prosecutors indicted Smith last year. As a result, The state of Iowa stopped prosecuting Smith in December 2020.
