Repeat Sex Offender Sentenced

A man who was registered as a sex offender in Iowa after being convicted on a sex abuse charge in Illinois eight years ago has been sentenced to seven years in prison. In August 28 year old Nathan Lantz agreed to a plea deal for sexually assaulting another young girl in Dubuque last year. Lantz was originally charged with second degree sexual abuse but entered an Alford plea in Dubuque County to lascivious acts with a child and violation of the sex offender registry. Lantz was accused of sexually abusing a girl younger than 13. During the time of the abuse, Lantz lived within one thousand feet of an elementary school, which was a violation. In addition to the prison sentence Lantz was assessed fines and given a 10 year special sentence which could land him back in jail if he is deemed a danger to the public.
