CEDAR RAPIDS — A 30-year-old Eagle Grove man has pleaded guilty to one count each of sexual exploitation of a child and extortion.

The U.S. Attorney’s office for the Northern District of Iowa says Jason Marvets entered the plea Wednesday, admitting that he persuaded an 11-year-old girl to send him sexually explicit images of herself in 2016 and earlier this year. He also admitted to threatening to distribute the images of her in order to get more images.
