Sex Abuse Sentence


Rock Rapids, IA (KICD)–A Rock Rapids man has pleaded guilty to a class C felony county of 3rd Degree Sexual Abuse.

The charge stems from a criminal complaint stating that Jeffrey Benson committed a sex act with a fifteen year-old victim. Benson was 51-years-old at the time of the offense.

After entering a plea of guilty Benson was sentenced by the Third Judicial District Court last week to a prison sentence not to exceed ten years. Benson will be a registered Sex Offender once released on parole, work release, or any other release from custody
