Couple Arrested for Housing Sex Offender (Iowa) : Authorities arrest couple in connection with sex offender violation.

Think these sex offender laws apply only to sex offenders? Think again!

Sheriffs arrested two people for child endangerment for allegedly allowing a sex offender to live in their home.

The Sheriff's Office filed other charges on the suspect after learning that Julia and her husband, Ian P. Rodenberg, were renting a room at their residence to a person on the sex offender registry.

The Rodenberg's have three small children ranging from 4 to 10-years-old also living at the same residence.

Ian Rodenberg was then arrested and both he and his wife, were charged with child endangerment and taken to the Fayette County Jail. The child endangerment charge is an Aggravated Misdemeanor. The Fayette County Sheriff's Office also notified the Department of Human Services and the three children were turned over to their custody.
