A Moravia man on the Iowa Sex Offender Registry was sentenced to probation after pleading guilty to failure to register within five business days with law enforcement following a change in residence.
Roderick Alan Klampe, 53, because he is on the registry, is required by law to notify the sheriff in the county where a change in residence occurs. In this situation, he was required to call the Appanose County Sheriff's office.
The judge in the case, Rose Anne Mefford, sentenced Klampe Oct. 25 to two years in prison, suspended, to two years probation with the Department of Corrections and 10 additional years on the sex offender registry on the charge of first offense sex offender registration violation, an aggravated misdemeanor.
Klampe entered a voluntary, negotiated guilty plea to the charge law enforcement claim occurred July 1, 2013.
Klampe is on the registry because he was convicted in Dubuque County on Oct. 23, 2000 of two counts of lascivious acts with a child, class D felonies and at the time he was required to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
The criminal complaint affidavit filed by the Appanoose County Sheriff's office July 5, 2013 states the defendant admitted during questioning he had stayed at a residence in Albia from June 24-July 1, 2013.
He owes $943.75 for this case.
