Court Upholds Predator's Sentence

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) -- An appeals court has upheld a 42-year prison term for a former Iowa college student convicted of using the Internet to sexually exploit and extort teenage girls.
   The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Friday the sentence for Lucas Robison was reasonable.
   U.S. District Judge Linda Reade sentenced Robinson last May, calling him a child predator who deserved the stiffest sentence she could give.
   Robinson met at least 12 girls from across the country through social media and coerced them into sending him graphic photos and videos. Robinson then threatened to release the images to classmates, friends and family if they didn't make even more sexually explicit images. He extorted one Iowa girl into having sex with him.
   Robinson was a student at Mount Mercy in Cedar Rapids.
