Fayette County Man Sentenced for Sexually Abusing Children

A Fayette County man has been sentenced for sexually abusing several children.

53-year old Roger Allen Kline of Hawkeye was sentenced to ten years in prison suspended to two to five years of supervised probation with placement at the Department of Correction Services residential facility in West Union.

Kline has pled guilty to three counts of felony lascivious acts with a child as part of a plea agreement.

According to court documents, in April 2015, Kline took three children – all under the age of 11 – from their home and brought them to a park area in Oelwein. He allegedly handcuffed the children inside of a semi truck he was driving at the time and sexually abused them.

Kline will remain in custody by the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office until bed space is available at the Department of Correctional Services.
