Posted on 06 April 2016 by KWBG

BOONE, Iowa—The Boone County Attorney’s Office recently handled to prosecution of a case against an Ogden man for violating the state’s Sex Offender Registry.  This week, the County Attorney’s office released details of case and sentencing.  On March 29, 2016, District Associate Judge James Malloy sentenced Patrick Edward Koenig, 49, Ogden, Iowa, to probation following a bench trial on a conviction for Failure to Comply with Sex Offender Registry Requirements, 2nd or Subsequent Offense in violation of Iowa Code which is a Class D Felony.

In March of 2014, the Boone County Sheriff’s Office investigated reports of Patrick Koenig living within 2,000 feet of Ogden Middle School.  Patrick Koenig was convicted in 1986 of Sex Abuse in the 3rd Degree, in 1992 of Sex Abuse in the 3rd Degree, and in 2001 of Sex Abuse in the 3rd degree and Lascivious Acts to a Child.  In addition to these convictions he was convicted in 2011 of Failure to Comply with the Sex Offender Registry.  These convictions made him subject to the 2,000 foot restriction for sex offenders under the Iowa Code.  During the investigation a Boone County Deputy found Mr. Koenig at an Ogden residence with his vehicle parked outside.  Mr. Koenig also registered his vehicle at this residence in Ogden.  On his registry paperwork filed with the Sheriff’s Office he stated he lived at Dickcissel Park from 5-6 am to 9 am and stayed at the residence in Ogden from 9 am to 1:00 am.  Deputies with the Boone Sheriff’s Office multiple times went to Dickcissel Park and never saw Patrick Koenig or his vehicle at the park.   The Deputies would see Mr. Koenig’s vehicle usually parked at this residence in Ogden.  The residence that Mr. Koenig resided at and listed was within 2,000 feet of Ogden Middle School in Ogden, Iowa.

A bench trial was held in the District Associate Court in Boone.  The trial was held on August 1, 2014 in front of the Honorable James Malloy.  A verdict was finally rendered in this case one and a half years later on January 4, 2016, with the Judge finding Patrick Koenig guilty of Failure to Comply with Sex Offender Registry Requirements, 2nd or Subsequent Offense in violation of Iowa Code section 692A.103, 692A.114, 692A.111.  Failure to Comply with Sex Offender Registry 2nd Offense is a Class D Felony which carries a maximum sentence of five years with the Iowa Department of Corrections.

Sentencing was held on this case on March 29, 2016.  The Boone County Attorney’s Office representing the State requested prison with the Iowa Department of Corrections.  The Boone County Attorney’s Office argued that Patrick Koenig has been in and out of prison since 1986 with four prior sex offense convictions in 1986, 1992, and 2001; he also previously violated the registry requirements in 2011, and the probation office recommended that he be placed in custody.  The Boone County Attorney’s Office argued that Patrick Koenig should be placed in prison to protect the public from his unlawful behavior.  Judge Malloy instead sentenced Patrick Koenig to probation for a term of two to five years and to reside in a residential correctional facility but remain on the street until placement is available.
