Bricelyn Teen Sentenced to Time in Residential Facility and Probation for Sexual Abuse Charges in Iowa

Seven counts of second degree sexual abuse lead to no prison time for Bricelyn teen.

Eighteen year old Kody Walter Roth of Bricelyn was charged with those counts for allegedly sexually abusing a minor in Winnebago County between January 2019 and June 2020.  Even though he was a minor himself when the sex abuse occurred, Roth was prosecuted as an adult.

Roth pleaded guilty to two counts of second degree sex abuse and the rest were dismissed as part of a plea deal.  He was sentenced Tuesday to 180 days in a residential correctional facility and five years of supervised probation.  Roth must also complete all recommended sex offender treatment and sign up with the Iowa Sex Offender Registry.
