COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa — A former western Iowa doctor who has made a guilty plea in a federal child pornography case has surrendered his license to practice medicine in Iowa.

The Iowa Board of Medicine says 69-year-old Dennis Jones has relinquished his license.

He is facing charges of second degree sexual abuse for allegedly abusing a five-year-old girl in Pottawattamie County.

The Iowa Board of Medicine says Jones was a pediatrician in the Council Bluffs area and hasn’t practiced medicine since May of 2013.

Last month in federal court Jones pleaded guilty to possessing child pornography.
