Ex-Iowa doctor gets prison for child pornography

COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) — A former Council Bluffs doctor has been sentenced to more than 10 years in prison on a child pornography charge.

The Daily Nonpareil reports (http://bit.ly/1nXbyfRhttp://bit.ly/1nXbyfR ) Dennis Jones received the sentence Friday in federal court in Council Bluffs on one count of possession of child pornography.

Jones pleaded guilty to the charge in May as part of a deal. He also agreed to permanently surrender his medical license.

Authorities say they found about 1.2 million images and 9,300 videos of child pornography during a search of Jones' home. Court documents say other images and videos showed patients at Jones' medical clinic that were taken secretly with a pen camera.

Jones faces a separate sexual abuse charge involving a minor. He also faces lawsuits in connection to the patient images and videos.
