Sioux County Attorney Thomas Kunstle says the case arose in May, 2014, when authorities investigated 34-year old Cody Christian Foster of Sheldon, for inappropriately touching a sixteen year old boy in Sioux County. Kunstle says Foster was arrested for assaulting the 16-year old with the intent to commit a sex act against the boy.
On Thursday (July 7th), a Sioux County Judge sentenced Foster to two years in prison. According to Kunstle, pursuant to the Iowa Code, Foster also received a special sentence that, after being released from prison, commits him to the custody of the Director of the Iowa Department of Corrections for a period of 10 years, as though he were on parole. Foster will also be required to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life. Additionally, Foster is required to complete a substance abuse evaluation and follow the treatment recommendations, and was ordered to pay court fines, fees, attorney fees, and any other prosecution costs associated with the case.
