DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) - Authorities say a 24-year-old registered sex offender in Davenport has been given 20 years in prison for receiving child pornography.

Jacob Watters was sentenced Monday in U.S. District Court in Davenport. He’d pleaded guilty in August after making a plea agreement.

Prosecutors say investigators in Merced County, California, notified Davenport police that Watters was engaging in sexual chats and exchanging nude pictures with a 15-year-old girl. Prosecutors say electronic devices found during a search of Watters’ Davenport home showed he’d been doing the same with six other underage girls.
