  • A Fremont County man, Tony Lee Stogdill, 46, of Imogene, was sentenced March 25 in the United States District Court in Council Bluffs on the charge of interstate transportation of a person under 18 for the purpose of engaging in criminal sexual activity.
    His wife pled guilty to helping cover-up the crime.
    Judge John A. Jarvey sentenced Tony Lee Stogdill to 210 months in prison and 10 years supervised release to follow, announced United States Attorney Nicholas A. Klinefeldt. Stogdill was ordered to register as a sex offender, pay a yet-to-be-determined amount of restitution and a $100 special assessment to the Crime Victim Fund. He remains in the custody of the United States Marshal pending his designation to a Federal Bureau of Prisons facility.
    Stogdill pled guilty Nov. 7 to transporting a 15-year-old female from Iowa to Nebraska, Missouri and Illinois then back to Iowa and having sex with her.
    Stogdill admitted he took the girl with him June 4-6, 2009 as he worked as an over-the-road trucker. Stogdill admitted his actions were a historical pattern of conduct with the minor.
    Jennifer Stogdill pled guilty in Iowa District Court for Fremont County to compounding a felony regarding her cover-up of the sexual abuse in 2009. She was sentenced by the state court to probation.
    Stogdill had been convicted of sex-related crimes twice prior to the current conviction. He was convicted March 13, 1989 in Fremont County of false imprisonment and assault with intent to commit sexual abuse. He was also convicted in Fremont County Oct. 21, 1991 of third degree sexual abuse.
    The criminal investigation was carried out by the Fremont County Sheriff’s Office, Fremont County Attorney’s Office, the South West Iowa Narcotics Enforcement Task Force, the Council Bluffs Police Department, the Omaha Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
    It was prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s office for the Southern District of Iowa.
