Ex-Roswell councilman to be sentenced for federal child porn charges

A former Roswell city councilman is set to be sentenced for six charges related to child pornography Friday morning.

Kent Igleheart, 55, pleaded guilty to four counts of producing child pornography, one count of possessing child pornography and one count of receiving child pornography in January.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Richard Moultrie recommended Igleheart be sentenced to 30 years in prison during Igleheart’s January plea hearing. The minimum sentence for all six charges is 15 years. 

Igleheart was first arrested in DeKalb County in October 2015. He had carried on a three-year online relationship with a girl starting when she was 14 years old, according to the DeKalb County District Attorney’s Office. Igleheart posed as a 17-year-old boy and asked the girl to send him sexually explicit photos, which she did. 

The federal charges stem from Igleheart producing photos of four girls under the age of 18 engaging in sexual conduct, an indictment says.

U.S. District Judge Amy Totenberg will sentence Igleheart. She said in January that she is not bound by Moultrie’s recommendation of 30 years or the plea deal to which Igleheart agreed. Igleheart surrendered his right to appeal Totenberg’s sentence as a part of his plea deal.

Igleheart’s sentencing hearing is scheduled to begin at 10:30 a.m.
