Michael Sampson Jr - Repeat Sex Offender

An Evansdale man who is a registered sex offender has been arrested on federal child pornography and weapons charges.

Michael Sampson Jr. was charged by federal grand jury in U.S. District Court in Cedar Rapids.

The 37 year old faces two counts of transportation of child pornography, and one count each of possession of child porn and felon in possession of a firearm.

Sampson was already on sex offender registries in Iowa and Illinois in connection with a 2003 incident which led to charges for indecent solicitation of a child. He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to probation, 60 days in jail and ordered to take a sex offender evaluation.

The new charges stem from incidents in early 2008.
