A Nora Springs man who allegedly used two minors to create child pornography faces federal charges.  

Aaron Leroy Olson, 35, pleaded not guilty to two counts of sexual exploitation of a minor in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Iowa in Cedar Rapids last week. 

His trial is set for July 8. 

Olson had a female minor and a male minor engage in sexually explicit conduct so he produce visual depictions of it between October 2017 and October 2018, according to the indictment. 

He was charged in federal court because he used a digital camera, SD cards and a computer hard drive manufactured outside the state of Iowa, the indictment states. 

Olson is also facing child sexual abuse charges in Floyd County District Court in a case involving a 5-year-old girl.

He pleaded not guilty in November to three felony counts of second-degree sexual abuse in that case.

The alleged abuse took place on three separate occasions between Jan. 1 and Nov. 8, 2018, according to trial information filed by Floyd County Attorney Rachel Ginbey. 

He was arrested on those charges on Nov. 9 by the Nora Springs Police Department. He posted $2,600 cash bond on Nov. 29 and was released from the Floyd County Jail under the supervisors of the Department of Correctional Services pending his trial, which is currently set for July 9. 

He was indicted in federal court in the child pornography case on May 7 and was arrested two days later on a warrant. 

Olson is currently in the Linn County Jail on a federal hold.
